Fall 2023 Introduction to Theology Course with Dr. Joel Houston

A basic overview of the central doctrines of the Christian faith, designed for those who have no previous formal training in Christian theology or for those who need a refresher.

A six-part series with the Dr. Joel Houston

Our beliefs about the "ultimate reality" play a crucial role in our decision-making process, big or small. Our ideas about God, the universe, and human existence shape and guide our lives. Introduction to Theology provides an opportunity to explore these significant questions in the Christian tradition. This course focuses on critical thinking, reading, and the development of a theology that is both orthodox and life-giving. The class pays attention to how Christian theology can be applied to various vocations, not just academic or pastoral careers.
