“Gospel in a Sentence” Contest

January 20, 2012 by  
Filed under HGIM, Monthly Articles

The Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Good News. The Message of Salvation. Plan of Redemption. New Life in Christ.

The Gospel has been called so many things, referred to so many ways, and presented from so many points of view. The Gospel is universal. The Gospel is complete. The Gospel is the only message showing the way to eternal life. The Gospel brings glory to God every time it is presented … and, that’s why we’re interested in finding a sentence that communicates the Gospel succinctly, accurately, and thoroughly.

Not an easy challenge!
