God created the world (Genesis 1-2; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:15-17). We, His creatures, rebelled (Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:10). But God, in unfathomable grace, sent His Son Jesus as the sacrifice for our sins (1 Peter 2:23; Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 10:9).
Through faith in Jesus Christ, we have been forgiven of our sins, welcomed as sons and daughters, and empowered by His Spirit to live lives that reflect His goodness and love (John 14:6; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10). This is the gospel. This is our core passion, and the source from which all of our other desires and ministries flow.
You cannot even begin to bridge the gap between the perfect, holy God and your sinful heart except by trusting in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 4:4-5). But we believe that no one ever “gets past” the gospel. The gospel is the means of our entry into the family of God and the means for our continued growth together in this family.
