The Bible calls the Gospel "of first importance" (1 Cor. 15:3-4), which means that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the primary and central truth in all of Scripture. "Gospel-centeredness" is a way of speaking of the primacy and necessity of the Gospel in the believer's life. The Gospel is not only the means for our justification by faith alone, it is also the means of our sanctification by faith alone. Understanding the wonders and mysteries of the death and resurrection of Christ - how this relates to our Christian life and mission as a church - is our joyful pursuit. The following articles, books, and sermons have tremendously impacted our church family towards a greater faith and love for our precious Savior, Jesus Christ!
Peter 1:2-4, "Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust."
