The Gospel

What is the Gospel?  Why do we need to hear and understand the Gospel?  Since God is good, holy, and just, His wrath abides upon all of mankind, because all have sinned against Him. And since God is love, He is not willing that any should perish, but that all come to repentance. Thus, through the gospel, or ‘good news,’ God provides the only means to eternal life and a restored relationship with Him for every person who believes upon or casts all their their trust in Jesus Christ.  See below 9-1/2  minute video by Paul Washer (courtesy of
