The term ‘Gospel’ originates from the Old English word ‘godspel’, meaning ‘good news’ or ‘glad tidings’. In the Christian faith, the Gospel is the joyous proclamation of God’s redemptive activity in Christ Jesus on behalf of man enslaved by sin. It is the heart of our faith, the cornerstone of our church, and the foundation of our hope. To our Hmong church community, the Gospel is the story of God’s immense love for humanity. It narrates the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This narrative is not merely a tale from the past but a transformative message that has the power to change lives, heal broken hearts, and restore hope. In brief, the Gospel is the good news that:

  1. God Loves Us: Even when we were lost in our sins, God’s unending love reached out to us. (John 3:16)
  2. Sin Separates Us from God: Our disobedience, termed as ‘sin’, has caused a rift between humanity and the Creator. (Romans 3:23)
  3. Jesus is the Bridge: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent to Earth, lived a sinless life, and sacrificed Himself on the cross. Through His death and resurrection, He conquered sin and death. This act bridged the gap between God and man. (1 Peter 3:18)
  4. Salvation is a Gift: We cannot earn our way back to God through good works. Salvation is a free gift from God, attainable only through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  5. Our Response: Receiving this gift requires acknowledging our sin, repenting, and placing our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. (Romans 10:9-10)

For our Hmong church, the Gospel is not just a doctrine; it is our very identity. We believe that every individual has the right to hear this message of hope and salvation. This belief fuels our commitment to evangelism, both within our community and beyond.

As a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, our church is also deeply rooted in the Great Commission – to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We are dedicated to not only speaking about the Gospel but also embodying it in our everyday lives. Our services, community activities, and outreach programs all aim to reflect Christ’s love and share His message.

In a world teeming with challenges and uncertainties, the Gospel stands as an unshakeable truth. We invite you, whether you are familiar with these teachings or hearing them for the first time, to explore this good news. Engage with our community, ask questions, and discover the transformative power of the Gospel in your life.
