(Adapted from Soma Family of Churches)
We believe the gospel is the good news of what God has graciously accomplished for sinners through the sinless life,sacrificial death, and bodily resurrection of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, namely our forgiveness from sin andcomplete justification before God; this gospel is also the foundation for our confidence in the ultimate triumph of God’s Kingdom and the consummation of His purpose for all creation in the new heavens and new earth.
This gospel is centered in Christ, is the foundation for the life of the Church, and is our only hope for eternal life; thisgospel is not proclaimed if Christ’s penal substitutionary death and bodily resurrection are not central to our message.
This gospel is not only the means by which people are saved, but also the truth and power by which people aresanctified; it is the truth of the gospel that enables us to genuinely and joyfully do what is pleasing to God and to growin progressive conformity to the image of Christ.
The salvation offered in this gospel message is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone; noordinance, ritual, work, or any other activity on the part of man is required in order to be saved.
