At Horicon Baptist Church, the most important thing we believe and teach is the Gospel. The Gospel is the “Good News” of what Jesus has done to save and forgive humanity.
Why do we need saving and forgiving? Because God is good and one day He will judge all of mankind for the wrong things we have done. This is terrible news because Romans 3:23 says, "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard."
But here is the good news: God, being rich in mercy sent Jesus Christ to the world. Jesus was born of a virgin. He was truly God and truly man. Jesus lived a sinless life and He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He was nailed to a cross (as a substitute) for all who would believe in Him. On that cross when Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied. But the story does not end there, because three days later He rose from the dead defeating sin, death, and the devil. Now all those who turn from sin and turn to Christ and trust alone in His sacrifice will be forgiven of their sins.
This is what we believe, it is the most important thing we teach, and if you have never believed this Gospel, do so today.
