Purpose: To equip Christian disciples with a basic understanding of the following five doctrines – Anthropology [man]; Hamartiology [sin]; Soteriology [salvation]; Pneumatology [The Holy Spirit]; Ecclessiology [The Church]. The class will seek to help learners grow in their experiential knowledge and love of God becoming more deeply satisfied in God and His gospel. Learners will also be exposed to resources that can be explored for future growth and learning. We will avoid what the Bible calls “mere speculation” remembering the goals, blessings and dangers of learning theology.
