We are Evangelical.
Evangelical comes from the Greek word euangelion, which means “gospel” or “good news”. When we say we’re evangelical, what we mean is that we believe in the gospel – the good news that Christ has come to save us from our sins.
- God created the world, and he put humans (who he made in his own image) in charge over it, to care for it and look after it. Everything was originally good.
- But the first humans sinned – they disobeyed God and rebelled against him. Humanity is now spiritually dead: ostracised from God and doomed to destruction.
- But God loves the world, so he sent his Son the Lord Jesus into the world to die on a cross to pay the penalty of our sin so that we can be saved.
- Any human can now be made alive: freely forgiven and reconciled to God through the Lord Jesus and empowered to live a new life for him.
