Our Inheritance and the Holy Spirit

This past Sunday, we continued along in our series on Romans 8, looking at the truth that "in this hope, we are heirs". In Christ Jesus, we are: heirs to a new identity (v.15) heirs to a redemption (v.12-14) and fellow heirs to glory (v.16-17) As we've studied this incredible passage of Scripture over the past two weeks, one recurrent theme is the certainty with wh...

"And to the one who does not work but believes inhim who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness" - Romans 4:5 That's apretty unbelievableidea.

A term that we use often at Veritas is that we want to "practice like we play." In other words, we don't just want our Sunday Gatherings to be awesome, or our City Groups to be awesome, but we want every single part of our young (not even 2-years-old yet) and growing church to be, you guessed it, awesome. We do this because we beleive that God has given every single part ...
