WELCOME TO FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH of MEDFIELD
The Gospel is the Heartbeat of First Baptist Church. The Gospel changes everything, Romans 1 tells us that it is the power of God unto salvation, and it changes every part of our lives.
The Gospel centers and shapes us, and gives us a whole new identity. It tells us that while we are sinners who rebelled against God, we are loved by a savior who came, lived, died in our place and for our sins, and then rose to prove this was so. It tells us that we are saved not because we have figured out a way to earn it God’s love, but simply by trusting in his gracious salvation. It tells us that we are new creations, who are brought into the body of Christ, a community that is deeper and richer than any other, because it is based on the death and resurrection of Christ.
More than that, it leads to a whole new way of thinking, acting, and living. It calls us to seek to love, care for, and serve each other and the world around, because this we know that this is how Christ cared for us. Being a Christian is much more than just being someone who engages in Sunday morning rituals. The gospel changes every part of our lives everyday. The bad, the good, the individual, and the corporate, the home, and the job, and everything else as well. The gospel is the heartbeat of our church, because the gospel changes everything.
