New life entered into this group of Gentiles.

Hear


All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name (Acts 10:43).

Believe


Caesarea is a beautiful seaside town in Israel. During the time of Jesus, it was the Roman capital of the province of Judea.
 
It’s most famous resident was Pontius Pilate. 
 
Decadence ruled the day in Caesarea. The Romans who lived there enjoyed “everything to excess”.
 
Because of this, very few Jews ever stepped foot in that town. They wanted nothing to do with the gross immorality of that place. Nor were they welcomed there by the Romans.
 
This makes Peter’s visit there remarkable.
 
He marched boldly into the town with one mission—to tell Cornelius, a Roman centurion, and his household the good news of Jesus.
 
Peter walked into Cornelius’s house, something Jewish law prohibited him from doing. The love of God was moving him forward. He stood in front of this Gentile group and he told them about Jesus, the one who was crucified and then raised to life. 
 
As he was speaking, new life entered into the hearts of these Gentiles. They received the Holy Spirit just like the Jews had on the day of Pentecost.
 
Peter was astonished. But he saw it with his own eyes. God did for these Gentiles exactly what he had done for the Jewish people. He saved them by grace.
 
In that immoral and decadent place, God made it known that anyone who called on the name of the Lord would be saved, whether Jew or Gentile.
 
And aren’t you glad that God sent Peter to this most unlikely place in all of Israel to share the Gospel? Because of this one event, the message of God’s love and grace, whether Jew or Gentile, has spread throughout the world.

Thank God that through Cornelius and his household, the Gentile world was exposed to the message of Jesus Christ. All are saved in the same way. That includes you. 
 
 

In Him,

About Basic Gospel: Just a Minute!


Hear it. Believe it. Live it.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, powerful, and life changing. It declares the love of God for mankind. It is the good news people long to hear. Radio delivers it straight to the heart.

But it is not enough just to hear the good news. God wants to make His love a reality in our lives. He wants us to believe it and live it.

At Basic Gospel, we are dedicated to proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ and the profound simplicity of His love and grace.

Our hope is that the clear presentation of the Basic Gospel and the singular focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ will anchor listeners to the love of God and will encourage them Covenant life that is theirs in Christ.

About Bob Christopher


Born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, Bob grew up in a Christian home and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 13. During his high school and college years, Bob struggled with the question of how to live the Christian life. His "roller-coaster" experience taught him that he didn't have what it took to be "God's guy."

After college Bob attended a Bible study in Atlanta where he discovered what he was missing—the life of Jesus Christ. Salvation isn’t a self-improvement program. Salvation is receiving and experiencing new life altogether. Witnessing God give new life to an elderly gentleman before he died put in Bob's heart a passion to share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible.

During his 30 year ministry, Bob has communicated the truth of the New Covenant in a way that is both practical and easy to apply to everyday life. "The Gospel is more than a message," Bob says. "It is a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ based on His love and truth." Bob is passionate about the basic truths of Christianity, and deeply encouraged by those who are courageous enough to apply them in daily life.

Bob is the author of Simple Gospel, Simply Grace, released by Harvest House Publishers August 1, 2015 and Love is..., published by Basic Gospel. Bob and his wife, Jeanna, live in Denton, Texas, with their children, Caitlin, Coleman, and McKenzie.
