The gospel isn’t moral conformity, which is religion, nor is it self-discovery, which is secularism.

It isn’t something which we do; rather, it’s something that has been done for us. It isn’t a divine rehabilitation program for us or the world. It is, rather, a finished work that was done on our behalf. It is the grace of God poured out on us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And it is our singular focus and engine of transformation.

Here, then, are several worthy summaries of the gospel — and some thoughts on what happens when we believe it.

Summaries of the Gospel
Glen Scrivener 3-2-1 Gospel Presentation

The three videos below explore the big questions of life. They don’t assume you believe in God but they hope you’ll take the time to engage with his story. It can be told as simply as 3-2-1. If Christianity is a house, consider 3-2-1 ‘the grand tour.’ You’re invited to step inside and have a look at the Christian faith from within.

When the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.
