Tailored to equip you make an impact
In this course, we’ll be studying the doctrines foundational for our faith in a systematic way. Hence, this course is also called Systematic Theology. Systematic theology is the study that answers the question: ‘What does the whole Bible teach us today about any given topic?’
After regularly reading the Bible, a Christian may make a statement like, “The Bible says that everyone who believes in Jesus Christ will be saved.” That’s a true summary of a major biblical teaching. Every time a Christian says something about what the whole Bible says, he or she is in a sense doing “systematic theology.” But in academia, systematic theology may elaborate on what it means to “believe in Jesus Christ,” and what it means to “be saved,” carefully considering the implications of each term.
Hence, Systematic theology is the study which involves collecting and understanding all the relevant passages in the Bible on various doctrines and then summarizing their teachings clearly so that we know what to believe about each topic.
The study of various doctrines will help us know the truth and the truth will set us free. It will also equip us to teach and guide others in the truth in God's Word. This course will increase your understanding and knowledge of the various doctrines in God's Word. The understanding gained will help you have a firm foundation upon which to build your life and ministry. It will also help you to be more confident in explaining your faith to others.
