What is a Gospel-Centered Church?

January 11, 2015 Speaker: James Sharp Series: Stand Alone

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:1–15:8

What is a Gospel-Centered Church?
1 Corinthians 15:1-8 | 1.11.2015

1 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

‐ 1 Corinthians 15:1‐8 NIV

1. three gospel truths:

a) the gospel is news, not advice

b) the gospel demands a personal response

c) our greatest challenge will always be remembering the gospel

2. for the Church, the gospel must be both the source of and goal of everything
