The third (only in order and not in importance) in our list of priorities here at BGH is "Gospel Always". Very simply this is the desire we have as local Christians to bring the good news of eternal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ to the population of Bensham and surrounding areas of Gateshead. This is our burning ambition, to make the Lord Jesus Christ as widely known as possible.
This is a direct response to the command of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. As Jesus left to go to heaven he gave his disciples a very clear and important instruction to make the spread of the gospel their highest priority. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said "“And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”. In Matthew 28:18 to 20 this is explained in even more detail. “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen."
So here at Bensham Gospel Hall all our activities are saturated in the gospel message and our desire to make it known in plain and simple language that very one of all ages and from every background may clearly know the love and God and way of salvation.
A clear commitment to this is seen with our weekly Gospel Meeting. This takes place every Sunday evening from 6.30 pm to 7.15 pm. This is a time for a clear, biblical presentation of the Gospel. Each week you will hear a different speaker preach directly from the bible and explain in detail the fundamentals of the gospel. We believe in this day there is so much confusion about the real content of the biblical gospel. So we preach Christ First and Scripture Alone. We don't take our message from the traditions of philosophy or religion but base all we say on the Bible alone. We never ask for audience participation or take a collection from those who attend. Each meeting is simply a presentation of the truth of the bible. After each meeting there is an informal time to enjoy some refreshments together and ask any questions that you may have. Free Literature is always available.
Nothing is more important than your eternal salvation. This life passes quickly and can end suddenly. Through the Lord Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection all who truly repent of their sins and fully trust in Christ for salvation are assured of eternal life and the indwelling Spirit of God to give power to live a new life for the glory of God.
Nothing is more important than the Gospel. So be sure that if you come to a meeting in Bensham Gospel Hall or meet us on the street with our community outreach you will always know what you will hear - "Gospel Always".
