Statement of Faith
The Good News: At Edson Baptist Church, we love God’s good news, also known as the gospel. In His announcement, God has declared His love, His peace, His joy and life everlasting to everyone who believes in His Son. The good news is that Jesus Christ, has come into our world to rescue sinners.
Who is Jesus? What has He done? What does this have to do with us?
God answers each of these questions and so much more in His Word. Because we love the gospel, we are also very serious about the Word of God at Edson Baptist. Jesus said that all of the Bible bears witness to Him (Luke 24:27, 44-45, John 5:39-40). Therefore, put a priority on careful biblical preaching and teaching. We want to hear God’s good news to us clearly.
What is the Gospel?
The gospel – which means “good news” – is God’s announcement that people who are far away from Him may be brought near by the work of His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches us that God created everything and is the Ultimate King. He is hand choice have rebelled against God, but instead of leaving us to deserved punishment, He sent His Son to redeem us.
The heart of the gospel is the death and resurrection of Christ. He died to bear the penalty for our sins – For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23). Christ defeated sin and death on the cross. The proof of this is His bodily resurrection on the third day. Christ’s resurrection gives a sure hope of eternal life to everyone who believes this good news that God has sent His Son as the Saviour of the world.
