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.

WORSHIP
 
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.
Membership-iconCOMMUNITY
 
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.
hands-iconSERVICE
 
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.

MULTIPLICATION
 
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…

Ephesians 1:7

SERMON PODCAST

JOHN-THAT-YOU-MAY-BELIEVE | CHRIST’S INSUFFERABLE EXAMPLE
In the final days of Jesus’ earthly ministry, He seems to have concentrated His time and attention upon His closest disciples. In John’s Gospel, we read about an evening meal during which Jesus took on an awkward task. Jesus – the Son of God, the Holy One of Israel, the Messiah of old – dressed Himself as a lowly servant and did a humiliating chore. In washing the feet of His disciples, He was illustrating His posture in all-of-life and calling His disciples to follow His example. In this message, we shall consider the summons Christ gives to His followers and the implications for Christian living.JOHN-THAT-YOU-MAY-BELIEVE | CHRIST’S INSUFFERABLE EXAMPLE

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |HEAR & OBEY CHRIST’S WORDS
    The words of Jesus Christ are indeed the promises and precepts of eternal life. The one who hears and obeys Jesus has no judge, but rather enjoys freedom from condemnation altogether. But the one who does not receive Christ’s words... who does not hear and obey Christ’s words... that one will be judged and condemned by those same words on the last day. In this message, we shall consider the pleading and warning words of Christ at the close of His public ministry in the Gospel of John."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | HEAR & OBEY CHRIST’S WORDS".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |OH LORD, HELP US SEE & BELIEVE
    God has revealed Himself profoundly and compellingly in His word, and this is sometimes overwhelming to us. This is as we should expect. Wouldn’t it be surprising to learn about an infinite, omnipotent, and holy God that never surprised or confounded us? God, by definition, will regularly surprise and confound those who seek to know Him better. In this message, we learn God’s explanation for the reason we encounter unbelief in relation to Christ and the Gospel. With God’s help, we will delve into the mysteries of God’s gracious grace. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | OH LORD, HELP US SEE & BELIEVE".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |SUBJECTS OF A SUFFERING KING
    There are glorious promises in the Gospel of Jesus Christ! The King of glory offers eternal life, present companionship with Himself, and honor from God the Father. But there is also a disturbing paradox among these pleasant words in Scripture. Christ earned these blessings for His followers at the troubling hour of His crucifixion. Christ beckon His disciples to suffering as they follow Him. Christ’s servants become partakers of everlasting life by hating and losing life in this world. In this message, we shall consider this paradox in the Gospel message to those would be subjects of a suffering king. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | SUBJECTS OF A SUFFERING KING".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | CHRIST GENERATES EMOTION
    Christianity embraces the emotional experience, and it does so in the healthiest and most productive way. Emotion itself is neither good nor bad; but what motivates our emotions and how we express them can become morally good or bad. The experience and expression of emotion driven by the truth and nearness of Christ is marvelous and to be expected in the life of every believer. In this message, we shall consider the essential and beautiful experience of emotional expression in the Christian life. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | CHRIST GENERATES EMOTION".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | DECLARING WAR ON THE MESSIAH
    Like the Assyrian king who marveled at his own power (Is. 10:5-11), God used the religious leaders of Jerusalem to bring about His purposes of judgment in the world. Only this time, God’s judgment fell upon His own Son. What a profound display we see in the Gospel of Christ! In this message, we shall look to John 11:45-57 and consider the amazing heart of the Gospel message. In and through Jesus’ suffering, God exhausted His own wrath against sinners and gathered into one the Children of God from all peoples."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | DECLARING WAR ON THE MESSIAH".
  • Apr 1, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION
    Apr 1, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION
    What a profound and magnificent promise Christ has made to all those who love and trust Him! And, what incredible evidence Christ has given in order to demonstrate His trustworthiness to make good on that promise! Christ has power over death – even His own death – and He has promised to grant everlasting life to those who believe Him. Christ has raised dead men back to life, He has been resurrected Himself (never to die again), and Christ will raise all His people to new and everlasting life in the end. In this message, we shall consider Christ’s miraculous power over death in the resurrection of His friend, Lazarus."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION ".

    MISSIONS SUNDAY | JESUS BUILDS HIS CHURCH
    Who is Jesus? What has He done in the world? What is He still doing in the world, and where can we see such activity? These questions are not unlike the question posed to Peter (Jesus’ disciple). Peter’s answer was a confession about Christ and a pivotal point in redemptive history. Jesus made some profound statements after that confession, and there is much we can learn from them today. In this message, we shall consider the reality that Christ Himself is the builder of His Church."MISSIONS SUNDAY | JESUS BUILDS HIS CHURCH ".

    WE ARE THE CHURCH | MARKS OF A HEALTHY CHURCH | QUALIFIED UNDER-SHEPHERDS
    Authority is not a particularly good word in our modern western culture. Many people decry the abuses of authority we encounter all around us, and rightfully so. However, the abuse of something good doesn’t make a good thing bad. In this message, we shall complete our series on marks of a healthy church by considering the godly expression of authority in the unique office of pastor or elder. May God help us to understand, to embrace, and to encourage the good application of authority in our lives.WE ARE THE CHURCH | MARKS OF A HEALTHY CHURCH | QUALIFIED UNDER-SHEPHERDS
