What is the Gospel?

There are many ways of explaining the Gospel. The true message always remains the same but sometimes language can change how it is presented. We use what we call the "5 G's" to help explain and remember the Gospel. 

G1 - God

God is the Sovereign Creator to whom all creatures owe obedience and worship.
He dictates the terms of life.
He has made humanity in His image and with an innate sense of Himself and right and wrong.
All are without excuse.

G2 - Guilt

We are all sinners who sin. 
Apart from the grace of God sin affects every aspect of who we are, how we think and what we do. 
We are dead in our sins and in need of mercy and rescue.

G3 - Grace

We are saved by Grace alone, through faith alone, because of Christ alone. 
Only on the basis of Christ's life and death can a sinner be made righteous before God.
Even the faith to believe is a gift from God.

G4 - Gratitude

We worship God, serve Him and obey Him in response to our salvation.
We do not do good deeds to earn our salvation; rather we do good deeds to respond to our salvation.
The saved Christian serves, obeys and ministers out of gratitude and love.  It is response. 

G5 - Glory

The end of our redemption is the Glory of God.  God will display His glory in us through progressive sanctification and will share His glory with us as we enjoy His goodness forever.
This is the ultimate 'why' of our salvation.  The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
