Jesus Christ is the Gospel!
The Gospel is not good advice, but Great News . . . . The Great News about how sinful men and women just like us can be forgiven and come into a right relationship with a holy and loving God through the person and work of Jesus Christ.
God’s sovereign saving grace is revealed in the incarnation, sinless life, substitutionary death, and victorious bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. Salvation from sin is by grace alone, through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. The death of Jesus completely satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and wrath toward sin, while demonstrating His mysterious love and amazing grace toward sinners.
At Grace Central Coast, we believe the Gospel changes everything . . . how we read, understand and apply the Bible . . . how we view the world and our place in in it . . . how we live in our neighborhoods, our community and the world . . . how we live together in the church . . . how we experience all our relationships . . . how we do marriage and parenting . . . how we view and do our work. . . . how we handle the tough stuff of life . . . and a whole lot more. We believe the Gospel is not just the START of the Christian life, it's the very CENTER of the Christian life.
We believe our calling as a local church is to live the Gospel to the glory of God. Join us in this joyful calling!
