In Session 1 we will answer the question What is the Gospel? and then we look at Paul's Testimony and you will write out Your Testimony.

What is the Gospel?

Christ died for our sin and rose in victory. All men everywhere must repent.

The Gospel isn't news that you're OK. It's news that you're in a dreadful predicament. God is holy; He hates sin. You've sinned against the creator of the universe and His wrath is levelled against you. What's good about the Good News is Jesus Christ. He came and died for your sins, bearing the full wrath of God upon Himself and He rose from the dead in victory over the grave, so that by believing in Him, repenting from your sins and turning to God, you can be restored to God through His finished work upon the cross.
