What is the Gospel?

In short, the Gospel is the story of God’s plan to save sinners. Throughout human history, God has been actively involved in revealing Himself as both righteous Judge and gracious Savior. The story of God’s redeeming work may be best understood if we begin with creation and work our way towards Jesus. In fact, it is a good rule of thumb to always be in pursuit of Jesus.

What is Gospel-centered Worship?
Worship begins with revelation. The God of the universe makes Himself known through revelation and humanity is made to respond to such a display with adoration, gratitude, humility, praise, celebration, and wonder. Because humans are naturally sinful, an essential aspect of Worship is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, Gospel-centered Worship includes a human response to the revelation of God as He makes Himself known through Jesus Christ as the Savior of sinners.
What is Gospel-centered Community?
Community in creation, especially in humanity, reflects the nature of God Himself. God is triune; He is Father, Son, and Spirit. As such, God is communal and relational, and humanity is meant to reflect this essential aspect of God’s own nature. While each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is neither private nor separate from other Christians. In fact, the Christian journey and its destination are always meant to be understood in the context of community with others.
What is Gospel-centered Service?
Serving others without any expectation of receiving anything in return has been a hallmark of Christian lives over the last several centuries.  Self-sacrifice and costly service was embodied in no one more than Jesus Christ.  God the Son set aside the riches of His glory and took upon Himself the poverty of sinful man in order to rescue sinners from their hopeless condition of slavery to sin and death.  Christians, therefore, serve willingly and cheerfully because they have been served by Jesus Christ.
What is gospel-centered multiplication?
Churches were never meant to be holding tanks for Christians. Rather, it is the role of every Christian and every church to make disciples of all peoples (Matt. 28:18-20). Our disciple-making efforts are not limited to FBC Diana. In fact, we understand that every Gospel-centered disciple-making effort across the globe is something to which we are inherently linked. Gospel-centered Multiplication is our effort to multiply disciples and disciple makers across the street and around the world. This includes support for church planting, short-term missions involvement and support, and long-term missions involvement and support.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us…

    Advent: The Peace-Making God
    Series: Advent
    One major message of Christmas is peace. Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth among those with whom God is pleased (Lk. 2:14)! God is the peace-making God, and we are wise to ponder the way of peace. In this message, we shall consider the means by which God has made peace with sinners and the means by which that peace is maintained.

    Advent: God’s Abundant Love
    Series: Advent
    Talk with most anyone in America who claims to be a Christian, and you will probably hear much on the subject of God’s love. Christians disagree about all kinds of things, but most seem to agree that God loves everyone unconditionally. However, the Scripture speaks of God’s love in particular terms, expansive terms, and profound terms. In this message, we shall consider the love of God lavished upon all those who are in Christ. We shall also consider the contrasting posture of God toward all unbelieving sinners.

    Advent: God-Given Hope
    Series: Advent
    More than 700 years before the birth of Christ, a prophet spoke to an obstinate people about eternal joy and peace to come. One could hardly have hoped for such a thing in the midst of their unspeakable horrors. But the promise was real, and the one who pledged it was/is fully capable and trustworthy. The promise of a peace-making, justice-meting, everlasting King was a comprehensive promise, and Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of it. This is true both in His first Advent and also in His second. In this message, we shall consider the eschatological promises in Isaiah 9:1-7 and the implications for our God-given hope today.
