the-story_001 THE STORY
The redemptive message of God (the Good News of Jesus Christ!) is the news that informs all other good news or bad news we hear each day. While there is temptation to reduce the Gospel message to a few bullet points, historically the Great Commission has advanced from everyday Christians knowing, living, and sharing the beauty of the Gospel within the context of their everyday lives. In response, Spread Truth is committed to putting forth the centrality of the Gospel message with an unyielding submission to the inerrancy, infallibility, sufficiency, and beauty of the Bible’s redemptive storyline for everyday Christians. Please Read The Story to help understand how it all began and how it will never end. Then share it with your family and friends.
