Romans: The Gospel of Salvation

In Romans: The Gospel of Salvation, you will learn...
• The Catholic teaching on salvation
• How to explain salvation to non-Christians
• What is required for salvation—faith or works
• What Paul really means by “works” not leading to salvation
• How Christ’s death changed our relationship with God
• The meaning of the difficult passages in Romans
• How we can enter more deeply into Christ
Dr. Swafford and Jeff Cavins explain that salvation is not merely the removal of a guilty verdict. Salvation is about entering into Christ’s life and death and sharing in his eternal sonship.
Three separate groups meet in Room 1 on Monday mornings and Wednesday & Thursday Evenings
• You can “Mix and Match” any of the sessions in the same week
• Sessions begin October 7, 9 & 10 and run for 8 weeks.
To register for this exciting program, please email or call the parish office at 671-1100. The cost of materials (workbook) is $25.
