Title: “The Faith as the Gospel” (see outline below)

Series: The Gospel





He who was formerly persecuting us is now announcing as the gospel the faith which formerly he ravaged. (Galatians 1:23)



  1. What It Is


As Christians, we hold the faith common to all believers (Titus 1:4; Jude 3)


The Bible is the complete divine revelation inspired word by word by God through the Holy Spirit (2 Pet. 1:21; 2 Tim. 3:16)



God is uniquely one, yet Triune—the Father, the Son, and the Spirit (1 Tim. 2:5; Matt. 28:19)


The Son of God, even God Himself, was incarnated to be a man by the name of Jesus Christ (John 1:1; John 1:14)



Christ died on the cross for our sins, shedding His blood for our redemption (1 Pet. 2:24; Eph. 1:7)


Christ resurrected from among the dead on the third day (1 Cor. 15:4; Acts 2:32)


Christ ascended to the right hand of God to be Lord of all (Acts 1:9; Acts 2:33; Acts 2:36)


Whenever any person repents to God and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ, he is regenerated, born again, and becomes a living member of the one Body of Christ (Acts 20:21; John 3:3; Eph. 1:22-23; Rom. 12:5)


Christ is coming again to receive His believers to Himself (1 Thes. 2:19; 2 Thes. 2:1; Acts 1:11)



  1. Why It’s Important


Jude 3

Beloved, while using all diligence to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you and exhort you to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.


Ephesians 4:13

Until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith



III. What To Do

  1. Be Affected

Romans 10:17 – So faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
