What is the Gospel?
The gospel means good news, and the good news of the gospel is that God’s grace has entered into the darkness of this world to give hope to all people. We are a people in need of hope because sin has destroyed our fellowship with our Creator, and we all rightly fall under God’s righteous judgement. But God, being rich in mercy and because of his great love for us, provides a way for us to be saved from his wrath and secure eternal life with him. God does this by offering a living hope, Jesus Christ his Son. Jesus is the hope of the gospel and the hope for all people. Christ’s death on the cross satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and wrath, and his resurrection confirms that death is defeated and there is hope in this life and the life to come for all who put their trust in Jesus alone. There is no other name by which men can be saved, so we make it our aim to proclaim Christ and him crucified until he returns and makes all things new.
Castleton Community Church exists to lead people to know and trust Jesus. Our desire is to help others experience the joy and peace of trusting Jesus Christ. God’s Word makes clear that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, therefore, we desire to make Him known so that people from every tongue, tribe and nation would find their rest in Him.
