What does being Gospel Centered mean?

'Gospel Centered' has in some ways become the new 'biblical'. Back in the day, people would ask you what type of church you went to, and in London we'd often say, 'a Bible believing church.' or a 'bible teaching church' or a 'biblical church.' These days, the new phrase/power-word is 'Gospel-Centered'.

It's being used so much these days, that it almost seems like its just a magic cloak we can throw on to let people know we are the good guys. But what does it really mean to be a gospel centred person?

Here's my attempt at teaching what it means to be a gospel centred person. This was part of a series I did on deacons, but don't let the title put you off, the bible's teachings on being deacons can very easily be applied to all of us believers whether we're a deacon or not.
