The GOSPEL OF CHRIST is the PREACHING OF THE CROSS of the POWER OF GOD unto SALVATION to EVERY ONE WHO BELIEVES IN JESUS CHRIST:

“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

We echo the words spoken by the Apostle Paul, who said:

“[FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD]; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:5-6).

“For the [PREACHING OF THE CROSS] is to them that [PERISH FOOLISHNESS]; but unto us which are [SAVED] it is the [POWER OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

“[FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST: FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION TO EVERY ONE THAT BELIEVETH]; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

“[LOOKING UNTO JESUS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH]; [WHO FOR THE JOY] that was set before him [ENDURED THE CROSS], despising the shame, [AND IS SET DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE OF GOD]” (Hebrews 12:2).

“[THAT YOUR FAITH] should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:5).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED]. For [WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS]; and [WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION]” (Romans 10:8-10).

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).
