"Gospel" means "Good News." We preach the good news of salvation from the power & penalty of sin.
"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." (1 Timothy 1:15). "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21). "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29).
Everyone needs to be saved. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" and "The wages of sin is death." (Romans 3:23 and 6:23).
You cannot save yourself. But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away. (Isaiah 64:6)....for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. (Galatians 2:16).
We have good news because of God's gracious act of love. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).
Christ offered Himself as the sacrifice for our sins. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (2Corinthians 5:21). ...who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed. (1Peter 2:24).
Salvation is possible only through trusting in Christ."Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved." (Acts 16:31)"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Have you called on the Lord for salvation from your sins? For "whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
