What Is Repentance?

In this special New Year’s sermon, Pastor Dave Capoccia examines the topic of repentance, what it is and why it is necessary both for salvation and for ongoing holiness. Pastor Dave defines repentance as the turning of the entire self (or inner man) from sin to God. Pastor Dave then looks at several Bible passages that emphasize four key aspects of true repentance.

1. Understanding, Leading to Confession (Psalm 51:1-4)
2. Emotions, Leading to Sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:9-11)
3. Will, Leading to Commitment (Isaiah 55:7)
4. Behavior, Leading to Fruit (Luke 3:7-9)
