WHAT IS THE GOSPEL
The Gospel is the good news that a holy God has compassion on people who have rebelled against him and experience sin and death. God sent his son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for sinful people, paying the penalty for sin that they deserve. Jesus rose on the third day in victory over sin and death. All people who will repent and believe in the saving work of Jesus Christ on the cross will have their sins forgiven and be brought into an eternal relationship with this holy compassionate God.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PRESBYTERIAN
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended into hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
