When you check out Grace Life Church, you are going to see a lot of the word “Gospel” because it is vitally important to our ministry. Here’s a definition:
“The Gospel is the good news (literally!) God the Father was gracious towards sinners like us. This grace is ultimately seen in Jesus Christ who lived a sinless life, died, and rose again so we can have forgiveness of sins and be in good standing with God. The Gospel is also what teaches the believer to live for Christ as they are being transformed daily to be more like Him. The Gospel sustains the believer and it is what the believer must turn to when they sin.”
We think that Titus 2:11-15 best sums up the Gospel, and we have taken it on as our “church verse”:
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.”
The grace of God is behind the Gospel. If God wasn’t gracious, we wouldn’t have good news to share. This grace from God saves people from their sins, and it teaches the believer to renounce sin (because sin doesn’t go away at salvation) and to live godly, being zealous for good works.
The Gospel is so important to us that we shape everything we do around it. Our children’s ministry, worship, small groups, and everything else will be built with the Gospel as its foundation. The Gospel is our center.
Our mission is seen in the last verse: “Declare these things”. Grace Life Church is passionate about its mission to “Share the grace of God to every life through Gospel-centered ministry”.
