“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes; first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ’The righteous will live by faith.’ ” Romans 1: 16-17 is Pastor Ryan’s life verse.
