The church is to be centered on this inspired sufficient, necessary, truthful, clear authoritative, and productive Word of God. As P.T. Forsyth urged “If we are not going to use our Bibles, it is of no use building our Churches.” …Paul emphasizes the preaching of good news (vv. 14-16) because “faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of Christ” (v. 17). Accordingly, Forsyth exhorts the church: “Our first business is neither to gather men nor to move them but to preach in the speech of our time …the universal and moving Gospel. Let it gather them, and let it stir them. The first condition of a true revival is a sound Gospel. To revive the Church revive its Gospel as given once for all in its Bible.” –Greg Allison
