What Is the Gospel?

Speakers: Greg Gilbert Year: 2010 Session: Breakout Session

The Apostle Paul had glorious godly stubbornness firmly planted on the cross of Jesus Christ. Pastors need to be mindful not to displace the cross at the center of the gospel proclamation. If one does, it would not be the gospel. In this session, Greg Gilbert defines the gospel, dismantles popular false gospels and points the way toward gospel-centered life and ministry.
