The Full Gospel


Paul’s Gospel presentation

Since true Christians disagree on this topic, I hesitate to include it in  However, Paul wrote that he proclaimed the full Gospel:

Romans 15:19
by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.
(Whole Chapter: Romans 15 In context: Romans 15:18-20)

Many other passages of scripture speak of the correlation between the presenting the gospel and miracles. 

Acts 14:3
So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders.
(Whole Chapter: Acts 14 In context: Acts 14:2-4)

Peter’s Gospel presentation

Peter and the disciples’ experience with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues did more than draw a crowd. It started the church age.  As Peter was explaining this event to the crowd, they asked him a very important question in verse 37.


Acts 2

36”Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

    37When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

    38Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Peter’s answer involved more than an altar call for salvation.  He did not hand them gospel tracts.  He required

  1. repentance
  2. water baptism

as prerequisites to receive this same “gift of the Holy Spirit” that he was explaining (v 33).

32God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. 33Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.


ThisGospel’s presentation

So, I include this “Full Gospel” section in order to avoid:

  • an incomplete presentation of the Gospel
  • hesitating to preach anything that would be helpful to you


Acts 20:20
You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.
Acts 20:19-21 (in Context) Acts 20 (Whole Chapter)



The narrow road of the Gospel is hard enough.  We need all the empowerment that God has promised in His word, in order to obey the gospel. 



Commanded to perform miracles?

Obeying God’s word involves the miraculous.  In the New Testament, we are commanded to heal the sick, and pursue the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit. So then, let’s get started with the first question:


What is Baptism of the Holy Spirit?
