The historical elements of the gospel are found in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ “for our sins” and the multitude of witnesses that join the documentary evidence of Scripture (1 Cor 15:3-9). The doctrinal elements of the gospel are found in Acts 20:21, “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” The practical elements of the gospel are found many places and described by many terms. They should not be thought of as cumulative, a growing list of requirements, but different ways of saying the same thing. “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame” (Rom 10:11). “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (v. 13). “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (vv. 8-9). Come! Drink! Trust! Receive! Look and live! Sincere faith always obtains.
