Does Your Church Preach the True Gospel?

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (Galatians 1:6,7)

5solasTrue Gospel preaching displays Jesus Christ as Lord and commands all to repent and trust in Him to be saved…It teaches that it is the faith of Christ, His righteousness credited to the sinner, that saves — not anything we have done or will do…Good works are a result of salvation, not the cause…

Counterfeit preaching invites all to “make a decision for Christ” (repentance is rarely mentioned) as though He, the Lord of all Creation, is begging and pleading for people to believe in Him. This leaves salvation ultimately up to what the sinner does, not based entirely upon what Christ has done…

…In essence, we save ourselves. The bottom line is that a false gospel, counterfeit preaching, always denies Christ’s finished work on the cross. Always. And that is to deny Christ Himself.
