Modern evangelical theology is flooded with conflicting viewpoints. Many of these disagreements arise between denominations, while others arise within denominations and individual churches. The apparent hopelessness of reaching theological unity has even led some Christians to deny the value of theology altogether.

With so many different ideas competing for our loyalty, how are followers of Jesus to determine what to believe? And how committed should we be to specific doctrines and traditions?

Series Goals:

  • Discuss the foundations for Christian theology.
  • Introduce the interconnected disciplines of biblical studies, theology, church history, and practical theology.
  • Describe a responsible, scriptural method for developing theological convictions.
