What Is the Gospel?

Oct 20, 2022 | General

EFM exists to extend the Gospel message to people everywhere in the world. 

The Gospel is a message of good news.

The Gospel is a message of good news to the person who realizes he is separated from God because of sin. It is the good news that Jesus died as a sacrifice, so that the sinner can be forgiven and reconciled to God. 

Some beliefs are foundational to the Gospel, such as the understanding that sin is self-willed rejection of God’s authority; Jesus is the sinless, resurrected Son of God; and salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone. We teach those truths. 

We invite the sinner to pray.

We invite the sinner to pray to God, admitting his guilt and believing God’s promise to forgive. We confidently extend God’s offer of salvation to the sinner who knows he can do nothing to save himself, because he can depend on grace alone. For a person who knows the essential Gospel truths, the prayer could be as simple as “Lord, forgive me.” 

This is the Gospel. We invite you to partner with us to extend the Gospel.
