It’s not uncommon for an accomplished musician to be able to sit down in front of a new piece of music and play it through without a hitch. It seems easy, as if playing required no effort. Yet, the ‘freedom’ to play with such skill comes only after years of disciplined practice. In the same way, the freedom to grow in godliness–to naturally express Christ’s character through your own personality–is in large part dependent on a deliberate cultivation of the spiritual disciplines. This class will walk you through how to cultivate the biblical spiritual disciplines in your life.
Taught by Jim McCallister & Logan Preston
Church History II
In this course, we will be looking into the history of how God has guided His church from the Protestant Reformation of the Sixteenth Century to the present. We will survey the major movements, doctrines, persons, and institutions that arose within the Church and affected its development during this time. Our emphasis will be the development of doctrinal understanding in the Church as well as key individuals whose lives should inspire us to biblical faithfulness today.
Taught by Brian Joines & Todd Young
The Word, the Church, and the Last Things
Some questions are easily answered. Why is the sky blue? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? This course is all about the tougher questions. Can I trust the Bible? Where did it come from? Is it truly God's Word? What is the church? When did it start? Is it necessary? What does the Bible say about life after death? Is Jesus coming back soon? Do we know exactly what will happen when he does? Join us for this theology class as we dive deep into these foundational topics.
