Applying the Gospel

The gospel is the good news about what God has done for us in Christ.  Because of the gospel, we are able to enter into a right standing with God.  Unfortunately, we often think this is the extent of the power and applicability of the gospel in our lives.  In this sermon series, we look at several key passages in Romans and we learn the very important and often ignored practice of applying the truths and lessons of the gospel to our everyday lives.  The goal of this series is that we discover how to return regularly to the gospel to address the challenges and struggles we face in life.
