What is the Gospel? 什么是福音?

New to Christianity? Our two pastors offer an introduction to the Gospel.



- 刘清牧师 (OIC主任牧师)

Translation of the video transcription:

Christians believe that the Gospel is the good news given by God to humanity. When humans were created by God, they were made in His image. However, due to human selfishness and self-centeredness, they fell into sin. The relationship between humans and God was damaged, as were relationships between people, and between humans and nature and the world. God did not want humans to be forever separated from Him in this fallen state. So, He gave us His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to restore our relationship with Him. Through Jesus, our relationships with one another and with the world are also restored. This is the Gospel given to us by God.

- Paul Liu (OIC Lead Pastor)


The Gospel is a translation of a Greek word that means good news. And the New Testament writers use that term to mean that through the life and death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, there is now liberation from the consequences of sin, for the damage of sin, the brokenness of sin, and that God’s people can be reconnected. This estrangement from God is now over. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15, “By this gospel, you are saved. For what I receive, I passed on to you as a first importance that Christ died for us. And so according to the Scripture that He was buried and that he was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter and then to the twelve. And after that, he appeared to over 500 of the brothers.” The Bible teaches us that those who believe this are saved. And it is truly Good News.

“福音”是一个希腊词的翻译,意为“好消息”。新约的作者们使用这个词来表示通过拿撒勒的耶稣的生、死和复活,人们现在可以从罪的后果中获得解放,可以从罪的损害、罪的破碎性中恢复出来,神的子民可以重新与神建立联系。与神的这种疏远现在已经结束。保罗在哥林多前书15章中写道:“通过这福音,你们得救。我所接受的,我传给你们是最重要的,那就是基督为我们死了。正如经文所说,他被埋葬,第三天按照经文复活,并向彼得和十二使徒显现。之后他向500多名弟兄显现。” 圣经教导我们,那些相信这一点的人将得救。这确实是好消息。
