Bulletin l 18th August
20 August, 2019
The Essentials of the Gospel
1. God has revealed Himself first in creation, and also in the gospel.
2. Because all mankind rejected their Creator, and replaced Him with creation instead, God gave man up to his deluding sinful choices.
[Romans 1:21-32; 3:9-10,23]
3. Man is condemned for rejecting the truth, that God intends to lead him repentance.
[Romans 1:18; 2:4-6; 6:23]
4. In love Christ died for us substitutionally, bearing our judgment to make us right with God
[Romans 3:21-26; 5:8-9; 8:1, 33-34]
5. Salvation and justification is not by works but by faith in Jesus Christ.
[Romans 3:20-28; 4:3-5, 23-25; 5:1]
6. Eternal life is through our union with Christ and our life in Him, in the same way death and sin came through our natural life in Adam.
[Romans 5:10, 12, 15-21]
7. Sin’s power and the condemnation of the law are broken through our sharing in Christ’s death
[Romans 6:3; 7:4, 6]
8. In Christ we are also raised to new life with the power to live right.
[Romans 6:4-6, 8, 22; 8:2-4]
9. This salvation is promised to anyone who in realisation of the bankruptcy of their own works, calls out in believing faith to the Lord Jesus as Lord.
[Romans 9:30-33; 10:9-13; 12:1-2]
