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…

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | RESURRECTION
    Religious claims are (and should be) subject to scrutiny. The wise person will thoughtfully consider the origins, evidence, and implications of religious truth-claims. Christianity is built upon the foundation of truths which originate in God and become chiefly revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. In this message, we shall consider the extraordinary force of Christ’s resurrection throughout all space and time."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | RESURRECTION ".

    Stand Alone Message on a Baptism Sunday _ Baptism _ Christ’s Covenant People
    Baptism is a topic about which many Christians have disagreed over the centuries. However, the overarching agreement for all orthodox Christians has always centered upon the idea that baptism does serve as the public designation that one is among Christ’s covenant people in the world. In this message, we shall consider the meaning of baptism in the life of the Christian. May God help us to celebrate this marvelous sign and the divine covenant to which it points."Stand Alone Message on a Baptism Sunday _ Baptism _ Christ’s Covenant People".

    Oct 14, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE AUTHENTIC SAVIOR
    Christianity, unlike many other religions in the world, is not a religion of personal subjectivity. It simply is not pragmatic. How one feels about Jesus, or the Bible’s truth claims, or Christians in the world today, has no bearing whatever on the legitimacy of Christianity. The short and direct question must be, “Is it true?” If what the Bible says about Jesus is true, then the argument is over. John, the Gospel-writer, exemplifies Christian witness by making historical truth claims about Jesus and then calling his reader to believe in Jesus. May God help us to follow John’s example."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE AUTHENTIC SAVIOR ".
  • Oct 7, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE GLORIOUS CROSS
    Oct 7, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE GLORIOUS CROSS
    From an earthly perspective, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is a gripping display of human depravity and lamentable circumstances. Many have seen Jesus as a pitiable historical figure, and His courage in death has earned Him some acclaim. However, there is far more to see here than may first meet the eyes. In this message, we shall consider the Gospel-writer’s record, observing John’s use of deep biblical imagery and emphasis on prophetic fulfillment. May God help us to see the glory of Christ upon the cross!"JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE GLORIOUS CROSS ".
  • Sep 30, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE SOVEREIGN GOD
    Sep 30, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE SOVEREIGN GOD
    In Jesus’ final hours, we see Him beaten, mocked, and crucified. We hear a cacophony of malicious voices, demanding Christ’s degradation and murder. And yet, in the midst of all of this, Jesus thunders a powerful word of stabilizing clarity. He claims divine sovereignty over all of these events and actions. In this message, we shall observe the scene in John 19, and consider the words of divine sovereignty Jesus speaks."JOHN : THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE SOVEREIGN GOD".
  • Sep 23, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | A DEMANDING INVITATION
    Sep 23, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | A DEMANDING INVITATION
    What does Jesus invite sinners to do? This is a good question to consider, especially for those familiar with the churchy language of an “invitation.” We would also do well to consider the tone or the posture of Christ’s invitation to sinners. In this message, we shall see the bitter irony of religious and political obsessions, and we shall also see a piercing invitation from Christ’s own mouth. We shall observe that Christ’s invitation is exceedingly gracious and superlatively demanding. "JOHN_ THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE _A DEMANDING INVITATION".
  • Sep 16, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE CUP IS EMPTY
    Sep 16, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE CUP IS EMPTY
    The first question of the Heidelberg catechism is, “What is your only comfort in life and death?” This is a good question, indeed! How would you answer? Well, the writers begin their answer, saying, “That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death, am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ, who, with His precious blood has fully satisfied for all my sins...” In this message, we shall consider the “cup” which Christ consumed for His people at the cross. We shall marvel at the substitutionary work of Christ, and we shall praise Him that the cup is empty."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE CUP IS EMPTY".
  • Sep 9, 2018JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE GREATEST PRAYER
    Sep 9, 2018
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE GREATEST PRAYER
    If you could hear Jesus pray for you, what would you expect to hear? Would He pray for your health? How about your safety? Maybe your family relationships? Surely, Jesus cares about the ills of your community’s, your state’s, and your nation’s interests? It seems as though Christ cares about all of these things, but His chief concern is for the preservation, mission, and goal of His people in the world. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer, and we shall observe and apply the profound contents of the greatest prayer ever prayed.""JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE GREATEST PRAYER".
