The gospel is the story of God pursuing and rescuing people from sin and sadness by sending his only Son, Jesus Christ. It's good news! It's life-changing news! Indeed, the gospel changes everything.
The gospel first changes us by making us children of God and forming a family. We were not created to live alone. Rather, we are changed as we live our lives together in light of grace and truth found in Jesus Christ.
The gospel also gives purpose, joining us to Christ's mission to save the world. Christ didn't save the world through domination, but through dying. We follow Christ in serving our city sacrificially.
