Summer 2017 Scripture Memorization

Summer Scripture Memorization

Summer is here…

and with it a chance to read a good book, visit the beach, take a vacation, or just relax outside on a warm summer evening. But what about making this a summer to commit to sharing the gospel with friends and neighbors? One of the best ways to equip yourself to share is to memorize a few verses that clearly and succinctly present the saving message of the gospel.

What is the Romans Road?

It is a method of explaining God’s plan of salvation through a structured presentation of verses from Paul’s letter to the Romans. Romans declares the righteousness that comes from God: the glorious truth that God justifies guilty, condemned sinners by grace alone through faith in Christ alone. Join a friend or family member to partner up and encourage one another in this summer schedule. You’ll walk with the Apostle Paul as he leads us step by step through the Romans Road path of salvation.
One of the greatest joys we can experience as believers is to share the life changing message of the gospel, join us this summer for that awesome task! All verses below are presented in the ESV translation of the Bible.
