The gospel is the good news of God's grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ's life and death are the heart of the gospel. His resurrection is the power of the gospel. His ascension is the glory of the gospel.
Christ's death demonstrates His mysterious love and reveals His amazing grace. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and humans. The life of Christ, his teachings and healing demonstate the unconditional love which he held for all life. Our lives are faced with a choice of true life in that love or continual conflict and strife with oursleves and others. This grace, this forgiveness, this way of life is offered to all humans.
