After Jesus’ resurrection, He commissioned His followers to do His mission. He empowered them by giving every believer the Holy Spirit to guide them and teach them. The believer’s mission is to share the gospel with everyone.


New Creation

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
