Community and Video Guidelines

All Content submitted to Gospel Central must adhere to the following:
  • Video file must be 500MB or smaller in file size.
  • Video, statements, or comments are testimony-based in topic.
  • Speaker is clearly understandable. This includes audio levels and clarity of speech. No electronic alterations or manipulations of the speaker’s voice.
  • Visual quality is acceptable. Video has no glitches, pixelation, or static issues. No electronic alterations or manipulations of the speaker’s image or any other person’s image.
  • Lighting is acceptable. Speaker is clearly visibly in the video.
  • Video, statements, or comments are consistent with the fundamentals of the Christian Faith:
    • The Trinity: I believe that God eternally exists as three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and each person is fully God, and there is one God.
    • The Person of Jesus Christ: As the second person of the Trinity, I believe the Son reveals the Father. As fully God and fully man, Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died to pay in full the penalty for our sin, rose bodily and miraculously from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will come again in glory.
    • The Holy Spirit: I believe that God lives inside of believers in the form of the Holy Spirit, who was promised by Jesus to give us power to be His witnesses according to Acts 1:8.
    • The Second Coming: I believe in our Lord’s promised return, which could occur at any moment. According to the Father’s plan, Jesus Christ will one day return in power to reward believers and bring judgment and wrath to unbelievers.
    • Salvation: I believe that the offer of salvation is God’s love-gift to humanity. Those who accept it by grace through faith, apart from works, become new creatures in Jesus Christ.
    • The Bible: I affirm my confidence in God’s inerrant Word. The 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is without error in its original manuscripts, is completely reliable as the final authority in all matters of doctrine and practice, and is centered on the person and word of Jesus Christ. The Bible is fully true in all that it teaches and affirms.
  • No rips of movies, music, television, or any other third party copyrighted material.
