  • What Is the Gospel?

    Bryan Chapell

    Bible tells us that "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (1 Tim. 1:15). That is good news. That's the gospel. Chapell provides a summary of the biblical gospel: What God requires, he provides; what God provides, he perfects; and whom God perfects, he uses.

  • The Holy Spirit

    Kevin DeYoung

    Though we must make effort in our growth in godliness, the Spirit empowers through and through. The Bible is not a cheap infomercial telling us to change and then serving as an enthusiastic cheerleader: "You can do it!" We have a new strength at work by the Spirit. We can, by that same Spirit, begin to share in the qualities that are characteristic of God himself.

  • The Plan

    Colin S. Smith

    Christians find joy in knowing that God's plan will lead to the greatest possible display of his glory and the greatest possible joy for his people. We can be confident, Smith explains, that God knows exactly what he is doing.

  • The Kingdom of God

    Stephen Um

    The Bible's message promotes not self-mastery but the authority of grace. Authority belongs in the first place to God and his gracious self-donation to us. Scripture introduces the undisputed reality of the authority of God, his Word, and of revealed truth. God's kingship is one of the central themes in all of Scripture.

  • Justification

    Philip Graham Ryken

    It is only when we recognize how desperate our situation is from the legal standpoint that we can begin to understand the biblical doctrine of justification. Justification is central to the Christian gospel because it answers the fundamental question: How can a sinful human being be righteous before a holy God?

  • Creation

    Andrew M. Davis

    God made the universe to display his glory, but is not for any lack on God's part, as though he needed anything. Rather, he desires to give generously from the greatness of his being.

  • Gospel-Centered Ministry

    D. A. Carson and Timothy Keller

    Gospel-centered ministry is biblically mandated. It is the only kind of ministry that addresses human need as God sees it, reaches out in unbroken lines to other centuries and cultures, and makes central what Jesus himself establishes as central.

  • Christ’s Redemption

    Sandy Willson

    One of the most offensive doctrines in our day is the Bible's teaching on the uniqueness of Jesus as the way to eternal life. And yet, the one who has discovered God's love in the redeeming work of Christ is actually not shocked that God has provided only one way to be saved; rather, he's increasingly amazed that God provided any way at all.

  • The Church

    Timothy Savage

    To many, the doctrine of the church is peripheral compared to other more weighty doctrines. But Savage wants us to see otherwise. The church of Jesus Christ is the locus of God's plan for creation.

  • Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

    Ligon Duncan and Thabiti Anyabwile

    Christians may fall into either error: assigning too little or too much importance to baptism and the Lord's Supper. In doing so, we risk losing the beauty and richness of commands Jesus himself instituted and Christian churches have celebrated for nearly 2,000 years.

  • The Restoration of All Things

    Sam Storms

    Based on what God achieved in the life, death, and resurrection of his Son, Storms explains our confident expectation for God's eternal purposes.

  • The Gospel and Scripture

    Mike Bullmore

    All of Scripture has been born of great divine initiative. In this sense, the gospel is a cause of biblical revelation. While Scripture itself is not the gospel, all Scripture is related to the gospel, and the gospel is Scripture's reason for being.

  • Sin and the Fall

    Reddit Andrews III

    What exactly is wrong with the human race? Why does evil exist? Andrews explains the effects of sin and the fall on the human race. Sin has the capacity to destroy, so we must detest it.

  • Can We Know Truth?

    Richard D. Phillips

    Phillips presents a stance toward the knowledge of truth that reflects the core beliefs of our gospel faith and validates our experience as Christian believers.
