3 s. hrs. The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a working knowledge of the major elements underlying Systematic Theology. The course will survey the biblical teaching concerning Scripture, God, man, sin and salvation, the person and work of Christ, the Holy Spirit and application of redemption, the church, the return of Christ, the resurrection, judgment, and kingdom of God. Being a survey course, the main goal is to enable the student to lay a foundation on which to build a more thorough and complete understanding of theology as he matures in Christ. A supporting goal for this course is to help the student begin to think and reason from a sound theological perspective so that he will learn how to bring every thought under the lordship of Christ. It is further hoped that the student will learn to use his mind in a loving and earnest pursuit of the knowledge of God.
