God's Great Reveal

When God speaks, Light overcomes darkness; order prevails over chaos and peace takes the place of fear. As it was at Creation itself, so it is today with every human soul who seeks his Creator. God speaks and reveals Himself, and His love conquers all of life’s fears.

A Mother's Influence

A battle rages over the hearts and minds of our children today. Public schools, the entertainment industry and politics, together, undermine the traditional values that have protected our children.

The More You Know

Years ago, NBC ran a public broadcast entitled, “The More You Know”. Remember it? It promoted education with an assumption, “The more you know, the better off you are!” Generally, most would agree with that, but it all depends on what you want to know! Come listen to the knowledge that lured the Romans in the 1 st Century, and how it’s not much different from what lures us today.

Serving God and People Through Prayer

One of the greatest missionaries, Paul, appeals to the church by Christ Himself and by the love they have because of the Holy Spirit to pray for him, that words may be given to him so that he will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel and also for his deliverance. Paul believed that prayer was effective, powerful, and necessary.

There is No Other Name

No other force in history can unify a disparate church like the supremely powerful Jesus Christ. Paul must lay a bedrock foundation In order for the rich theology to follow.

Called Forth

The Book of Romans was written during a pivotal moment in the Early Church. Only a miracle would save the Church from disappearing entirely. But Jesus said, “I will build My church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it.” Jesus is still building, right? And as it was in the Early Church, today Romans continues to be foundational for our personal faith, and further, for the advancement of the Body of Christ.
