The Gospel is the Good News that God saves sinners through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus, by His Holy Spirit, for His glory.
The Gospel is the most important truth we can believe. It reconciles us to God and transforms our lives.
This Gospel is the subject of the entire Bible; its story unfolds throughout Scripture. At TCC, we summarize the message of the Gospel in four words: Creation, Fall, Rescue, and Life.
God created all things by His spoken word. He created humans in His image and gave them a perfect home where they could know and worship Him.
In the Bible: Genesis 1-2
The first humans sinned. They disobeyed God, rejecting Him and His perfect way. Their sin has spread to all humans. God, who is holy, has wrath toward sin. Sinners are separated from God and condemned to die.
In the Bible: Genesis 3, Romans 3:23
God sent His divine Son, Jesus, to earth as a human to die as a substitute for sinful humanity on a cross. Three days after His death, Jesus came back to life, defeating sin and death forever! He returned to heaven and reigns over all things.
In the Bible: John 3:16, Romans 5:8, I Corinthians 15:3-6, Ephesians 2:1-9
All who repent of sins and believe in Jesus are saved from sin and death and given new and eternal life with God by the Holy Spirit. Those who have new life also eagerly join Jesus’ mission of telling the Gospel to others.
In the Bible: II Corinthians 5:17, Romans 8:1,
