Fundamentals of the Gospel
- There are five fundamentals to the gospel. Knowing the basics is essential for every believer and helps us as we share the gospel with others.
- Creation: God created us in His image. We were created to be in relationship with the Lord.
- Sin: Sin separates us from God. We have a sin nature and our choices separate us from God.
- God’s love and forgiveness: God still loves us even though we sinned. God had a plan for redemption. He sent Jesus to die for our sin and we can be saved by faith.
- Man’s response: Man cannot work his way into heaven. We need to confess that Jesus is Lord and believe he paid the price for our sin.
- Temporary or Eternal reward: Immediately when confess Jesus as Lord, we are justified by Jesus and have eternal life. But we also experience the benefits of his Spirit working in us in this life.
