The central teaching of all Scripture is the Gospel: Jesus Christ is the Son of God who has died to take away the sin of the world, and risen again to grant us the promise of the resurrection of the body. Jesus' saving work is a free gift of our heavenly Father. This gift is given through the preaching of the Word and is received by faith. To this end, repentance and forgiveness of sins is proclaimed in Jesus' name (Lk 24:47), that is, with His own authority.
The people of this congregation are people of the Gospel. Everything that happens here, everything that we are about, is because of the Gospel. We are not perfect. We still sin. But we live from God's forgiveness of all our sins for the sake of Jesus' sacrifice in our place.
