Encountering the Gospel's Power

What would it be like to live as a Christian in first-century Rome? You would be in the capital city of a world empire. The greatest sports, culture, arts and politics are centered in your city. You can hear a dozen different languages on your streets and there are religions of all sorts vying for your attention. The staterules your life and the Emperor deems himself to be a god, worthy of worship. You heard about Christianity from a friend who was present at an incredible event thirteen hundred miles away in Jerusalem when a room shook, fire appeared, people spoke in different tongues and everyone talked about a martyr named Jesus who had died a criminal and then come back to life. The change in your friend had been remarkable and you had gone along when this new religion, but what had you committed yourself to? What was this new faith? A letter from a man called Paul, who calls himself a servant of this martyr Jesus, offers some answers.

Throughout history God has used the book of Romans to transform the lives of countless millions of people. In 2014 we are going to allow these words to speak to us again, for Paul writes that the gospel "is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe". In recent months we have set a mission agenda that enables us to "Know and make known God's love to Bretton, Peterborough and beyond". In Romans, Paul, encourages us to have confidence in the gospel as he explains why salvation is needed, how salvation was gained and how salvation impacts every area of our life and our world. So join us as we encounter the gospel's power.
