This 6-week course aims to equip students with a comprehensive overview of Christian theology and worldview, as well as its relevance for today.
"Critiquing presuppositions that undergird worldviews."

Worldview for theology or theology for worldview?

What is a worldview? How do we examine worldviews and critically understand them to advance Christ’s kingdom? This course will equip students to provide an effective defense of the Christian worldview as well as critique opposing worldviews for the purpose of proclaiming the gospel as loving neighbours to those around us.

Exploring the Consequences of Ideas

Ideas do not simply exist in a vacuum. They affect people and the way they live. To understand the impact of ideas, students will investigate the thought of past philosophers with the help of one of the greatest Reformed authors of the 21st century: R.C. Sproul.

"We have to determine our theology from the Word of God, not from what we feel."

— R.C. Sproul

What is theology?

Everyone has a theology. The question is whether that theology arises from critical examination or from uncritically absorbing the views of the surrounding culture. In this course, students will explore what the Bible says about theology and how it instructs us about who God is and how we must live in light of his revelation.

"Interpreting the word of God fairly and faithfully."

"To know is not to be wise. To know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom."

— Charles Spurgeon

Is there an order of theological priority?

Many Christians have a single favourite Bible verse or attribute of God without understanding the orderly way God has revealed himself. This course will help students recognise the canonical ordering of God’s revelation, as well as how to prioritise primary doctrines over secondary or tertiary ideas.
