Romans Sermon Series

Written to both Jewish and Gentile Christians in Rome, few books have shaped the landscape of Christianity like the book of Romans. The Apostle Paul walks us through faith from its origin to public expression throughout these 16 chapters of solid theology. He exposes the source of and theological implications of faith, and then shows us what a true life of faith in Jesus Christ should look like.
