The Gospel is God’s plan of salvation. Salvation, being saved from the punishment our sins deserve and the power of sin over our lives, is entirely the work of God’s grace. It cannot be earned or deserved. It was accomplished by the Lord Jesus Christ for His people who, because of God’s unconditional love, were chosen in Him before the world was made. God in His love forgives sinners, because of Christ’s atoning death, and, through the Holy Spirit, grants them the gifts of repentance and faith.
God’s salvation in Christ is freely offered. Sinners who believe in and trust Jesus Christ alone, as Lord and Saviour, are justified by personal faith alone, are considered by God to be righteous, are adopted into the family of God and receive eternal life. The salvation of every believer is therefore eternally secure in Jesus Christ through His saving and keeping power. Because of this there now remains no condemnation for those who belong to Jesus Christ.
