WHAT IS THE GOOD NEWS (THE GOSPEL)?

Good News components: Creation / Fall / Redemption / Restoration

God created the world. Mankind rebelled against Him. In consequence, the world was then submitted to frustration, trouble, disease and death. God in His love redeemed mankind through the sacrificial life, death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. God is now progressively restoring His creation to its original intent and purpose, firstly through His church, filling her with His Holy Spirit, cleansing her of sin until the last day when He will make new heavens and a new earth and live among his resurrected people for all eternity. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Response:
1. Repent & Believe in Jesus
2. Be baptized and be filled with the Holy Spirit
3. Follow Jesus on His mission (Be His witnesses, preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations)
