  • The Good News of the Gospel

    March 29, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    What is the gospel? The gospel is the “good news” from God that “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:1-4).
