2013 G3 Conference – “The Gospel: Message & Mission”

The message of the gospel has been neglected in many pulpits in modern evangelicalism.  In an aggressive attempt to grow churches through schemes and strategies of man, the true gospel has taken a backseat and all of this has developed a skewed mission for the church.  Rather than pleading with sinners to repent and be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ in our neighborhoods and throughout the nations of the world, many churches are interested in reporting numbers – and this approach has led to untold masses of false conversions.  We must have a resurgence of gospel preaching and missions for the glory of King Jesus.
