What Does It Mean to Be a Christian? 1: Believe the Gospel

By Sean Finnegan

Romans 6:23   You can’t earn salvation. It is God’s free gift.

1 Corinthians 15:1-2; Romans 1:16   The gospel is the message we believe for salvation.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4; Luke 8:12   The devil works to prevent people from understanding and believing the gospel.

The gospel includes three truths:

  1. Christ died
  2. Christ rose
  3. Christ is coming again

This is the good news message we tell people.

Christ Died

1 Corinthians 15:3; Romans 5:8   Christ died for our sins.

Romans 6:1-2; Matthew 7:22-23   Although Christ died for our sins, that does not mean we should continue in sin.

Christ Rose

1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Romans 10:9   God raised Jesus from the dead, proving to all that he is Lord (Messiah).

Christ Is Coming Again

1 Corinthians 15:22-25   Christ is coming again to establish the Kingdom of God on earth—a time when He will make everything wrong with the world right.

Matthew 5:5; 6:10   Although many believe heaven is our “home” and ultimate destination, Jesus is clear that our hope is to inherit the earth and enjoy a new age when God’s will is done.
