the gospel

We want you to know the authentic, biblical gospel we strive to faithfully proclaim at HFC. It's our prayer that every sinner who encounters this good news might hear the Lord calling them to turn from sin, believe upon Christ, and follow Him.

what is the gospel?


The Bible explains that God created everything, including us. He has the right to tell us how to live. Sin is the rejection of God's authority over us. God is loving, and He is righteous. He will not ignore sin and leave the guilty unpunished. (Genesis 1:1; 1 John 1:5; Revelation 4:11; Romans 2:5-8)


We rejected God and are guilty of sin. Sin has corrupted every part of our human existence. Our entire being is under sin's power. The penalty of sin is both physical and spiritual death. Our final destiny is eternal, active judgment in hell. (Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3)


Jesus is fully God and man. He came to die on the cross as a substitute for His people and to pay sin's penalty. Jesus rose from the dead, assuring us that God's wrath is satisfied. Sinners can be freed from sin's power and reconciled with God by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus. (John 1:1; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:26; Romans 3:21-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:20-22)


We must turn away from our sin and trust in Jesus alone to save us from sin and the coming judgment. When we repent and believe in Jesus, all our sin is placed upon Christ, and the perfect life Jesus lived is credited to us. After responding to the gospel through faith and repentance, Christians are baptized publicly as an outward expression of the inward transformation that God has begun in them. (Mark 1:15; Acts 20:21; Romans 10:9-10)
