The word “gospel” means good news. The center of the gospel is Jesus’ cross, that “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4).

God “commands all people everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30), to turn from their rebellion against Him and put their faith in Jesus, who alone lived the sinless life that God requires. All who trust and treasure Jesus have been justified through faith and are being transformed by God’s grace, becoming more and more holy, more and more like Jesus.
