What is the gospel?


The gospel tells us that our foundation is our friendship with God. This life-saving message proclaims that our relationship with God gives us spiritual liberty and eternal life. The gospel is based on Jesus' teachings and the fact of his God-revealing life. Jesus intended that the gift of the gospel belong to everyone. Living faith in the gospel frees us from the burdens of formal religion and gives us a living spiritual fellowship with God. Jesus' gospel affirms that we are all children of God and that we are all brothers and sisters. Some of the cardinal features of the gospel are: that we are all sacred as individuals; that there is true satisfaction in loving service; that we can have a personal relationship with God; that the spiritual is transcendent over the material; and that our personal choices lead us Godward.
