A Journey though Romans, Sermon Series  

The book of Romans has been called “the greatest letter ever written.” Theologian N.T. Wright said: “Romans is by common consent Paul’s masterpiece. It dwarfs most of his other writings, an Alpine Peak towering over hills and villages.” Over the next few months we will begin to unpack this amazing treatise and we will discover or rediscover God’s amazing doctrines of grace. We will learn about justification, sanctification and glorification, all doctrine which leads to duty or practical application in our lives. The first part of this series will discuss questions such as “Why do we need God’s righteousness?” (1:18 – 3:20). “What is God’s righteousness?” (3:21 – 5:21), and “How does this affect me?” (ch 6-8). The book of Romans was written to “establish” us (16:15) in the Gospel, which is the power of God unto salvation (1:16). This is the foundation upon which we can build our entire Christian lives. This series will deepen your faith, strengthen your walk, and encourage you to live in the victory of the Holy Spirit.
