Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven Is at Hand

Jesus Christ saves sinners. That is the wonderful message called the gospel, literally, the good news. When Jesus was on this earth, he proclaimed that message, and his disciples continued to proclaim it after he had ascended to heaven. As Jesus and his disciples preached that message, there was one element which was repeatedly emphasized - repent. That is quite a concept, and we will search the Scriptures this Lord's Day about it. We want to hold fast to our Lord's message: Repent and believe the gospel!
