What Every Person In Your Church Needs to Know
As you lead your church at the start of this third millennium, now more than ever you need to define what true faith is. In a world that resists truth and pays the price in escalating evil, Jesus says we’re the salt of the earthpeople of truth advancing the Gospel of peace. But how well does your congregation understand that Gospel?
A panel of prominent church leaders and scholars has drafted a clear, definitive statement of the essentials of the Gospel for the 21st century titled “The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.” Hundreds of leaders from across the denominational landscape have endorsed it, and the list of names, already impressive, continues to grow. This remarkable show of unity powerfully affirms the core beliefs about our salvation that evangelicals hold in common. In the face of our differences, these are what bind us together as the church of Jesus Christ and make the Gospel the Good News of Great Joy.
You hold in your hands a special pastor’s edition of the book This We Believe, which explains the Gospel statement for every believer. In addition to the core content of This We Believe, this pastor’s edition contains everything you need to take a season in the life of your congregation to study the essence of the Gospel and help your people live it anew:
12 illuminating sermon outlines on the meaning of the Gospel
Interactive worship resources and suggestions
Small-group discussion material suitable for Bible studies, Sunday school classes, and new member classes
An invitation to each one in your congregation to own a copy of This We Believe for his or herpersonal library
One of the greatest gifts you can give the church, and a lost world, is a clarion call to the truth. With the proliferation of many false gospels and the compromise of the true Gospel in many places, it’s time for the church to stand up with a united voice and declare what we believe. The series of sermons and the related worship tools in this book are designed to help you call the people of God to hold firmly to the Gospel. Lift the voice of your church in unison with the saints of God who have gone on before and declare without compromise, This We Believe!
