We at TCBC are thrilled to have completed the Gospel CD which we’ve been working on for the last few weeks. Our desire is to provide our church body with an “audio tract,” a CD which will give their friends, coworkers, neighbors and family members a straightforward, God-focused presentation of the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Regarding the specific content of the message, we tried to provide a gospel presentation that is understandable without being reductionistic and which presents the good news of the gospel as peace with God, not just an escape from hell.
In order to be thorough and avoid a “drive-by shooting” sort of presentation, we took 30 minutes. We are discussing eternity, after all, so we hope the length isn’t a hindrance. We’re enthusiastic about the resource because we believe that the gospel is the power of God for salvation (Romans 1:16; 2 Timothy 3:15) and that there is a unique power in the gospel message when it is proclaimed and explained (1 Corinthians 1:18 and 21).
In addition to the CD’s, we’re hopeful that having the resource available online will allow our people to send a link of the message to friends and family members via email. We would be thrilled if others would use it, as well. Feel free to link to it from your website, blog, facebook account, email signature, etc. Although it briefly mentions information about our church, I don’t think that you’ll find that to be a distraction. On the other hand, I’d encourage you to take the idea and improve on it in your own local church!
Here’s a link to the message:

Thanks to those from TCBC who came up with the idea and made suggestions to improve upon it. Thanks especially to Joe Tyrpak, our assistant pastor, for his help with the content and for his excellent work editing the recording! Finally, thanks to The WILDS for giving us permission to use a selection from Matthew Burtner’s recording Hear My Prayer for the interludes.
Please pray with us that the Lord will use His Word to draw many to salvation, and thereby bring glory to His Own Name!
