2024 Winter Gospel Meeting: God’s Plan for Saving Man

Thursday Feb 15th through Sunday Feb 18th

In this Gospel Meeting, Brothers Jeremy Betts, Jared Jayaraj, and Karson Lown present a series of lessons on God’s plan for saving man. The topics include hearing and believing the Gospel, the importance of repentance, acknowledging Jesus, the truth about water baptism, walking in newness of life, and what it means to be in Christ.

The Gospel: Hearing and Believing

Acts 15:7 (ESV):  And after there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.

Turning the World Upside Down With the Gospel

Acts 17:30 (ESV):  The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent

Acknowledging Jesus is the Confession

Matthew 16:16 (ESV):  Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

The Truth About Water Baptism

1 Peter 3:21 (ESV):  Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Walking in Newness of Life

Romans 6:1-14 (ESV):  What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

Turned Right, Now What?

Romans 8:1 (ESV):  There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
