Basic Bible Doctrines
Course Instructor: Rev. Dr. Clint Mix
There should be no theology that does not relate the mission of the church... And there should be no mission of the church carried on without deep theological roots in the soil of the Bible. No theology without missional impact; no mission without theological foundations.
Our understanding of who God is (Theology) should shape our understanding and practice of the mission of the church. The primary emphasis in the course will be on “Biblical Theology.” The course is designed to explore the underlying theological themes that are woven all through the Bible’s grand narrative.
This course will also provide a systematic view of theology. At each class a major doctrine will be taught by a small group of students.
8 Mondays from 6:30pm to 9:30pm for the following dates:
February 3, 10, 24; March 3, 10, 24, 31; April 7.
Please bring $17.00 for this course's textbook, which will be available at the first class.
