The Gospel Is For Everyone (3 of 3)
Series: The Gospel
Pastor Frank Damazio
The gospel is Jesus, and Jesus died for everyone, rose from the dead for everyone. God sent Christ to die for everyone. No one is left out of the redemptive reach of the gospel of Christ.

B. THE GOSPEL IS FOR EVERYONE!
1. The gospel is for all people of all ethnicities, both young and old, from all backgrounds of life, one and all, each one, all sorts, no one is left out - without exception!
