Systematic Theology I

Drawing from Scripture, the Christian tradition, and contemporary thought, this course offers an engaging integrative exploration of Christian teaching about God, creation, humanity, and Christ, showing how these key teachings strengthen our trust in the triune God and undergird faithful discipleship and ministry in today’s world. The course raises fundamental theological questions and considers how our answers to these questions connect to the proclamation of the gospel, Christian worship, life together in Christian community, and Christian witness in the context of secular Western thought and non-Christian religions. This course aims to renew participants’ sense of wonder at who God is, deep awareness of our need as bearers of God’s image who have fallen into sin, and gratitude for God’s gracious action in creation, providence, and redemption.
