'Romans' with Pastor Gregg Matte

The truth in Paul's letter to the believers in Rome has echoed throughout the world for nearly 20 centuries. Now, Pastor Gregg Matte leads us through Paul's words in a year-long study of this beloved and powerful New Testament book.

In Romans, Paul addresses truths about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, salvation, how we are to live out our Christian faith, and much more. Here's what well-known pastors and scholars have said about Paul's letter:

  • The chief book in the New Testament and the purest gospel.” — Martin Luther
  • “Unquestionably the most important letter ever written.” — John Knox
  • “Paul’s fullest, grandest, most comprehensive statement of the gospel.” — RC Sproul
  • “Paul’s letter to the Romans is arguably the greatest ever written.” — John Piper

Our journey through Romans began on Sun, Aug 14, and will continue through the spring of 2023. The first message series is 'To Rome With Love' (Aug 14-28) focusing on Romans 1:1-17, followed by 'I've Got Bad News and Good News' (Sep 11-25) based on Romans 1:18-32 and Romans 2 and 3. Pastor Gregg's message is heard at every campus of Houston's First on Sundays, and is also available live online.

  • The Loop Campus @ 9:15a, 11a & 5p
  • Cypress Campus @ 9:30a & 11a

About Paul

Before diving in to Paul's letter, Pastor Gregg gave us a look at the author himself. In these messages from July 24 and July 31 based on the book of Galatians, he provides us with perspective on who Paul was, his story, and what his motivation was in sharing his words with believers in Rome.
