What is the difference between Religion & Gospel?

Rediscover the power of the gospel. Many of us confuse religion with Gospel and we don’t ordinarily live as if the Gospel is true. Come journey with us as we explore the difference between Religion and Gospel…that the Gospel really IS good news. In fact, it’s the BEST news you’ve heard in a while!

Join Pastor Ruben Rios for "Jesus-Center of It All" as we rediscover together a renewal of the Gospel beginning March 7-15 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm EVERY night and also on Saturdays at 11:00 am here at the Richland Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The Drink That Saved My Life!
One of the worst feelings in life is when you experience that which you thought would bring you the ‘ultimate,’ ultimately lets you down.  Never could I imagine tasting a drink on the Las Vegas strip that would change my life forever!

The Touch That Leads To Change
There are things in life we want to change.  Perhaps one of the greatest things has to do with our identity because we are often tempted to accept what we are not.  Who are you?

Chapters Of The Gospel—Where Did We Come From?
We must start here if the gospel is to make sense there—with you, with friends, with life.  What’s it like for an author to write themself into a story that changes the course of history, forever!

Chapters Of The Gospel—Why Did Things Go Wrong?
It’s clear by stepping out your door or turning on the news that something is not right in the world.   One of the biggest break-ups has taken place and we see evidence of this every day.

Chapters Of The Gospel—What Will Put Things Right?
People have come up with all kinds of ways to make things right, but only ONE matchmaker can restore things and reconnect us to what was lost.  ONE who is the greatest of all!

Chapters Of The Gospel—How Can I Be Put Right?
TRUST—that’s it!  I know, it's tempting to write more.

Breaking Free From The Tombs
Sadly people often confuse ‘religion’ with ‘gospel’ but they are two different things.  The gospel is so much more than religion.  Unless we distinguish between the two, we will always be living among the tombs.

When Walls Come Tumbling Down
The default mode of the human heart is works-righteousness.  We don’t ordinarily live as if the gospel is true.  Thankfully the walls we build up have been smashed to smithereens, granting us full access to God.

The Good News About Suffering
People have many different responses to suffering: blame God, blame themselves, or do away with God.  The gospel gives us a better response.  What is it?  Here’s a hint—We may lose sight of God when suffering but God never loses sight of you.

Evidence That Jesus Is Alive
Jesus is no longer physically with us.  But, there is overwhelming evidence that he’s been spotted.  Have you seen him?
