October 7, 2018 | Romans 1:1-17 | exposition, gospel, righteousness

Full Transcript Available

In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul told the believers in Rome that he was eager to reveal God’s gospel to them as it had been given to him. We can receive God’s revealed Gospel as it has been offered to us. The gospel that reveals God’s righteousness calls us to God, obligates us to share it with others, and is the power of God for salvation.

Set Free by the Gospel

September 24, 2017 | Galatians 2:1-10 | exposition, gospel

The reason many people are not receiving the good news that sets us free today, is because they really haven’t heard the true gospel, or they heard it and received it, but then fell back into living by self-effort. This is what was happening to the Galatians. They had heard the true gospel from Paul, but they were in danger of losing their freedom in Christ by coming back under a slavery to self-effort. In the second chapter of Paul’s epistle to the Galatians, he explained why their freedom depended on the true gospel that he had preached to them. The true gospel is the only gospel that can set us free.

The Word of Salvation

March 5, 2017 | Luke 23:32-43 | crucifixion, gospel, salvation

Last words – we will all someday speak them. The seven last words of Jesus on the cross were recorded in the four gospels. In the gospel of Luke, Jesus responded with a promise of salvation to the criminal hanging on the cross next to Him, who had called on Jesus to remember him. In Christ’s response to the criminal on the cross, He revealed the promised salvation He has for us. How can we respond to Christ’s promised word of salvation?

In the apostle Peter’s first letter, he tells believers in Asia Minor that they can have wonderful joy in every situation because of the resurrection of Jesus.

Easter Means…Life

April 3, 2016 | John 11:17-44 | easter, gospel

Are you feeling a sense of having no purpose, like life just has little meaning right now? Are you feeling grief from a loss, perhaps the loss of a family member or the loss of a relationship? Is life just feeling too brief or too mundane? We need to hear that there is something more eternal and more abundant. In the gospel of John, Christ called Martha to believe that He was the resurrection and the life. We can receive the resurrection life of Christ by believing in Him.
