The Seven Churches of Revelation Sermon Series

The book of Revelation provides insight into the spiritual health of seven ancient churches in modern-day Turkey. Affirming what some were doing well and condemning those that were allowing themselves to compromise, Jesus was clear that they all needed to resist the temptations of the world. These letters also serve as strong reminders for the church in our day, encouraging us to examine areas of potential pitfalls so we can repent of any wrongdoing and course-correct to stay connected to our Savior and King.
