The core message of life and hope in Jesus Christ is often identified as “The Gospel”. This term refers to the proclamation of the good news of new and eternal life in Jesus Christ. So how are we to understand and experience the reality of this good news? In this teaching series Lakeview Pastor John Jenks will help us explore together why the gospel of Jesus Christ is indeed the best news ever! This can be a great series for you if you are new to the message of Jesus and desire to explore what a faith in Christ can mean for you today. If you are a follower of Jesus this series can help you go deeper in your life in Christ while also equipping you to share the good news of Jesus Christ with others. We hope you will join us for this series!
