The Gospel Message
Four main points:
1. Man is created by the God of all creation. He made us to worship and
serve Him. We are absolutely dependent on Him for life and sustaining all things.
2. Sin. Man has fallen short of God's standard which is perfect obedience.
This is human nature. The standard is embodied in the 10 Commandments. The
penalty for breaking any part is death. To be convicted of sin is the awareness of
a broken relationship with God and the need to find a way of reconciliation.
There is the sense of guilt over particular sins one needs to repent over, and a
general sense of of a sinful nature.
3. Christ. The Son of God, the Lamb of God, Who died for our sins, and was
resurrected from the dead, unto life eternal. The Perfect Savior. He lived the
sinless life that no human could. Only He could sacrifice His life to pay for our
sins. We place our trust in Him, our living Savior.
4. The call to repentance and faith. Faith requires a foundation of true
knowledge about the Person and work of Christ. One must abandon all trust and
confidence in one's own efforts and abilities. This leads to complete trust in
Christ and His provision for salvation and reconciliation with the Heavenly
Repentance requires the permanent turning from the past sinful ways of
life, and turning completely onto the path of righteousness to glorify God.
