By Jessica Suggs

Oct. 21, 2016

Throughout this past year, Pastor Mike Fabarez of Focal Point has delved into the theologically rich landscape of Romans in a year-long, verse-by-verse exposition. According to Pastor Mike, Romans—more than any other book of the Bible—lays out our sin problem, declares God’s righteousness, and explains how we can be reconciled to a holy God through the grace of Jesus Christ alone. For the faith-filled believer, there’s only one kind of hope: a confident, overflowing, I’m-staking-it-all-on-what-God-promised kind of hope. The hope found in Jesus Christ!

These timely messages provide encouragement for men and women going through the most difficult of circumstances. According to Pastor Mike, there’s ... Read More
