The gospel is the good news that God is redeeming people for himself and restoring his good creation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The gospel is the power of God to change lives and renew cultures. It will motivate everything we do as a church. It will change the way we love, give, serve, speak, parent, and view others. Because we know God and his gospel through the Bible, we will saturate everything we do with God’s Word. Ultimately, to say we value the gospel is to say we treasure Christ more than anything life can give or death can take away.
Because the gospel is the good news that God is redeeming people for himself and restoring his good creation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ:
- We will submit to the teaching of Scripture as expressed in the Statement of Faith (Article 3)
- We will seek growth in our knowledge of the gospel through a devotional pursuit of God.
- We will live out the implications of the gospel by pursing holiness in all areas of life, repenting quickly of sin, and submitting to the accountability and discipline of the church.
- We will seek the glory of God in all things.
