The Fourfold Gospel C&MA|DNA
From its earliest days, The Alliance has had as its foundation the four aspects of knowing Jesus. Now you too can help your small group or congregation understand what Simpson’s key thoughts were on this basic understanding of Jesus as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.
Session 1: It’s All About Jesus (Colossians 2:9–10)
This five-part study is ideal for new-member classes, Sunday school curriculum, and small-group study. The deeper life principles of the “Fourfold Gospel” enable us to live victoriously over sin, persevere through life’s trials, and be all God created us to be.
Session 2: Jesus, Our Savior (Acts 4:12)
“ . . . and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). From the beginning, God wanted it to be clear that the most important thing about His earthborn Son was that He would be our Savior and that “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Watch Lone Voice Now 4:11
Session 3: Jesus, Our Sanctifier (1 Corinthians 1:30)
At the point of salvation, Christ lives in us because we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. But at the time of sanctification, Christ begins to live through us because now we are filled with the Holy Spirit. “Itâs because of him that we endure in Christ Jesus who has become for us wisdom from God, that is our righteousness, our holiness, and our redemption” (Philippians 3:8).
Session 4: Jesus, Our Healer (James 5:14–15)
“Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.” (James 5:14–15). This promise remains true today. The power to heal comes from Christ alone. We seek His healing and wholeness first and foremost to glorify Him.
Session 5: Jesus, Our Coming King (Revelation 1:7)
The return of Jesus Christ to earth embodies the fulfillment of His promises and of the prophecies foretold about Him. This Second Coming, the culmination of the “blessed hope” of all believers, will be public and visible. “Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all peoples on earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
