Steps to Salvation

What is the Gospel?

Good news! You can be saved from your sin and its ultimate penalty!

The word "gospel" simply means "good news," and that's exactly what it is. If you understand and believe it, the gospel is the best news that you will ever hear! It is this good news that gives you the ability to find, to know, and to love God, not to mention escaping your bondage to sin, and the ultimate penalty of that sin: eternal death and separation from God.

The following are the essential points of this "Good News" that God graciously gives us in the Bible:

  • God created and owns everything, including you. – Genesis 1:1, Psalm 24:1
  • God is perfectly holy. – Matthew 5:48
  • God requires your perfect obedience to His law. – James 2:10
  • You have broken God’s law. – Romans 3:10; 23
  • You will pay the eternal penalty for your sin. – Romans 6:23
  • You cannot save yourself by your good works. – Titus 3:5
  • Christ came to earth as both God and sinless man. – Colossians 2:9
  • Christ demonstrated His love by dying on the cross to pay sin’s penalty. – Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21
  • Christ rose from the grave and is alive today. – 1 Corinthians 15:4
  • You must repent of all that dishonors God. – Isaiah 55:7; Luke 9:23
  • You must believe in Christ as Lord and Savior, and be willing to follow after Him. - Romans 10:9

We welcome you to call our office for more information, and to speak with someone about additional questions you may have.

A Biblical Perspective


At New Hope Baptist Church, we strive to bring everything into perspective through the lens of scripture. In fact, New Hope Baptist started out as Berean Baptist over 50 years ago – a name chosen because of the importance we place on the study of scripture. Acts 17:11 discusses the importance of “studying scripture every day” so we may compare what we see and hear in the world against what scripture tells us.  Does it line up with what God’s inspired Word tells us?  And how do we apply it in our lives?
