The gospel message, or “good news,” is this:
Even though we have all rebelled against the God to whom we are ultimately accountable, Jesus Christ suffered and died on a cross to pay the price for our sins. He rose three days later, conquering death, and offering new, everlasting life to all who would turn from their sin and trust in Him.
John 3:16 says:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
