Evangelical Repentance


Evangelical repentance (that repentance that is the immediate, inevitable fruit of regeneration) is, first and foremost, a change of mind about the gospel, which includes God's character, who Christ is and what He did, and the ground of salvation. It consists of a renouncing, an eschewing, a casting off, an abhorring, a detesting, a turning away from belief in a false god, a false christ, and a false gospel, and an embracing, a loving, a cherishing, a dedicating, a devoting oneself, a committing oneself to belief in the true God, the true Christ, and the true gospel. It includes the acknowledgment that while one believed a false gospel, he was dead in his sins, a hater of God, an open idolater, a producer of dead works, evil deeds, and fruit unto death.
