What is the gospel?
The gospel is the heart of what we believe. It is the grand story of God in relation to mankind, creation, fall, redemption, and consummation, which God brought about through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The gospel, in its most basic form, is that Christ died for our sins.
Jesus Christ lived the perfect life we should have lived, died in our place, and rose again, proving his power over sin and death in order to reconcile sinful man with a loving God who sacrificed himself to be with us. We cannot be saved by any work of our own but only by faith in the grace of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through this good news, Jesus Christ is renewing and redeeming creation to himself.
What are our basic beliefs?
We confess, believe, and teach the Christian faith as it is summarized in the traditional creeds of the Church - the Apostles' Creed, Nicene Creed, and the Definition of Chalcedon.
