Sermons in Romans

This was the first book of the Bible that was preached through at RBCNC, and Pastor Van Dorn's first sermon series. Having memorized the first eleven chapters of the book years earlier, and given the importance of the book for foundational Christian theology, it seemed appropriate to start here. These sermons were preached in September 2002 - February 2004. But Romans is such a vital book for the Christian faith that we also did a much shorter series several years later from January - June 2010.  You can find all of the sermons together here.
