The word gospel simply means good news. We use this word to describe the good news of who Jesus is and what He has done for us. Everything we do is affected by the gospel and we want to make it the centerpiece of our worship and service.
Many spend their lives trying to earn God’s approval by following rules, attending religious services, or being a good person; the truth is that the only way to a fulfilling life and an eternal future in heaven is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. At Crosslink, we want everyone to understand how they can receive the free gift of salvation in Jesus.
In order to be saved we first must admit we are a sinner. We are all infected with sin (Romans 3:23). We are born with sin (Psalm 51:5), and we all personally choose to sin (Ecclesiastes 7:20). Sin is what separates us from God. Sin is what has us on the path to eternal destruction.
Because of our sin, we all deserve death (Romans 6:23). While the physical consequence of sin is physical death, that is not the only kind of death that results from sin. All sin is ultimately committed against an eternal and infinite God (Psalm 51:4). Because of that, the just penalty for our sin is also eternal and infinite. What we need to be saved from is eternal destruction (Matthew 25:46).
Once we recognize our sin condition, and that we have fallen short of God’s standard, then we must believe on Jesus Christ alone for our salvation. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). God has already done all the work. He died for the sins of all humanity. All you must do is receive, in faith, the salvation God offers (Ephesians 2:8-9). Fully trust in Jesus alone as the payment for your sins. Believe in Him, and you will not perish (John 3:16). God is offering you salvation as a gift. All you must do is believe by faith and accept this free gift of eternal life.
Once you have believed on Jesus for Salvation scripture teaches us to confess what we have believed. (Romans 10:9-10). We simply confess to others what Jesus has done in us through His salvation.
