      3: the message of the Gospel of Christ

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Word of God
     (Heb. 4:12, etc.). The Bible so called because the writers of
     its several books were God's organs in communicating his will to
     men. It is his "word," because he speaks to us in its sacred
     pages. Whatever the inspired writers here declare to be true and
     binding upon us, God declares to be true and binding. This word
     is infallible, because written under the guidance of the Holy
     Spirit, and therefore free from all error of fact or doctrine or
     precept. (See INSPIRATION; BIBLE.) All
     saving knowledge is obtained from the word of God. In the case
     of adults it is an indispensable means of salvation, and is
     efficacious thereunto by the gracious influence of the Holy
     Spirit (John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:15, 16; 1 Pet. 1:23).
