What is an Evangelical Bible Gospel Church means?
The term ‘Evangelical’ means different things to a different Christian group, however, our use it broadly in reference to Protestant churches that continue to hold to the inerrancy of Scripture and salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
Essential Focus on John 1:12-13.
Although we are freely born-again believers by the gracious Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, wholly committed to the verbal inspiration and inerrant Word of God as our supreme authority for the rule of faith, worship & practice, yet we do not chase/drift after every new teachings or belief, instead, we’re faithfully committed to the ‘Faith once for all delivered to God’s people'(Jude 1:3) from the First Century Apostles & Prophets, who were the true foundation of the Church and Christ as being the Cornerstone of the church(Eph.2:19-21). And our Church is one of the buildings on that grand universal foundation by the merciful calling of God through Gospel of Jesus Christ; regenerated by work of the Holy Spirit to repentance and placing our faith in Jesus Christ. | We confirm with the Biblical and historical Christian faith – Read More
Why do we call it, as an Evangelical Bible Gospel Church?
What are Evangelical Christian means for us?
Evangelical Christian: In reality, all Christians should be evangelical Christians. The Bible is consistently instructing us to be witnesses of the good news (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 16:1-4; 1 Peter 3:15).
To begin, let’s break down the two words. The term Christian essentially means “follower of Christ.” Christian is the term given to followers of Jesus Christ in the first century A.D. (Acts 11:26). The term evangelical comes from the Greek word that means “good news.” Evangelism is sharing the good news of the salvation that is available through Jesus Christ.
The description “evangelical Christian” is intended to indicate a believer in Jesus Christ who is faithful in sharing and promoting the good news.
Bible Gospel Church
According to the scripture any church that has born purely through the acceptance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is a Gospel church. Because these churches have their origin in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They have not become the people of God under the authority of Man but through the personal experience of Salvation in Jesus Christ.
However, such churches must be recognised and approved by the faithful people of God, who confirm with Biblical and Historical Christian faith.
Thus, we avoid risking the church of Christ to becoming victimisation to false teaching, starting a new denomination, or going far away from the one true Body of Christ. Though we all might hold slight variation in Biblical and in practical theology, yet being as one body of Christ is the holy will of God.
Luther, Calvin, Knox, and Zwingli never wanted to break up the body of Christ. That’s why we call them “Reformers.” They wanted to stay in the church. They urgently tried to get the Church of Rome to re-form, to become obedient again to the Word of God. That was their aim—not to establish their own brand of Christianity. But they ran out of choices when the church leaders of their day stubbornly refused to budge and persecuted them ruthlessly.
As Reformed(or Evangelical) Christians we want to keep praying both of these: “Lord, keep us obediently in you” and “Lord, make us one.” And to the best of our ability we’ll need to work at both, right along with our Lord’s other sisters and brothers.
