the gospel

What is the gospel?

It's the good news that Jesus Christ came to redeem fallen mankind. It's the hope of eternal life. It's the knowledge that through Christ, life has purpose and meaning. We are not operating in an existential, random universe, but in a world created by a holy God. And since we have a Creator, we have a moral obligation to that Creator.

The introduction of sin into the world led to man's fallen nature. The only cure for the sin problem is to:

1. Admit that you are lost and need a Savior.

2. Realize that eternal death is the penalty for sin.

3. Acknowledge that God provided a way of salvation from the penalty of sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

4. Turn from your sin and accept Christ as the free gift of salvation.

Call us at 703-437-7400. We'd love to help you understand God's special plan of salvation. "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16). That's the gospel in a nutshell.
