The Gospel Defined

The motto of all true servants of God must be, ‘We preach Christ; and him crucified.’ A sermon without Christ in it is like a loaf of bread without any flour in it. No Christ in your sermon, sir? Then go home, and never preach again until you have something worth preaching. - Charles Spurgeon

The Gospel is Universal
  • John 3:16
The Gospel is Eternal
  • Acts 2:23-24
  • Romans 6:23
  • 2 Corinthians 5:21
