Course Description: Systematic Theology is a concise, accessible introduction to Biblical doctrine where students will deepen their understanding of what the Bible says about specific topics, how to defend your faith, and how to apply the head knowledge of theology to the heart knowledge of our day-to-day lives and personal walk with Christ. While students who are interested in Seminary or full-time ministry may find this course especially helpful, all students will benefit from its honest analysis of Scripture and exploration of some of the deepest questions about our faith. Students are encouraged to bring their tough questions to this class. Some of the topics we will cover include the Trinity, creation, atonement, election, justification, spiritual warfare, the second coming, and historic confessions of faith. We will seek to apply the theology we are studying to the world and events around us in a God honoring and edifying way.
