Module 3

Saturday 26 November Morning: Foundations of Our Faith with Shelly Kearns

This course surveys the foundational teachings of our Christian faith, as these have been articulated in the Bible. We will concentrate on four fundamental areas of theological truth: theology proper (that is, the study of God Himself); the Bible; The Trinity (that is, that our one God exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit); and our salvation.

This course seeks to be transformational, encouraging each student firstly, to understand how her theological beliefs guide her behaviour, and secondly, to cultivate, celebrate, and communicate her biblically shaped desire for God.
