Pastor Geoff preaches the biblical gospel -- the Reformation gospel -- from Romans 1:16-17. In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows what the true, biblical message of the gospel is under 5 headings that come out of these verses.
This message also shows how the biblical gospel CAN NOT be mixed with the Roman Catholic gospel. They are at odds with each other and cannot unite together. We who have the only true message of the gospel must reach out in love to our friends and proclaim salvation by grace alone, in Christ alone, through faith alone -- ALL for the glory of God alone.
