Perhaps no question has become more central to the identity and future of North American Christianity than this – What is the Gospel?
Many believe that the gospel has mainly to do with our personal salvation; others suggest that it can simply be equated with “justification.” Additionally, our understanding of the gospel seems to have lost its basic and necessary relationship to the life and mission of the Church.
Even if this question is settled, a much larger task remains – how do we share (and equip others to share) this message that, when rightly shared, has always changed the world. Today, both church leaders and everyday Christians often lack the words to share the good news of God’s in-breaking kingdom through Christ and the appropriate witness in order that those words may be received. Yet, the time is so ripe, as our world is so divided, for the comprehensive message of this good news.
Join special guests Bruxy Cavey and Lisa Fields, along with many Ecclesia voices, for a deep dive into both grasping and giving the gospel of the kingdom.
