What Will I Study?

We offer the most comprehensive approach to studying public theology in the mission of God.

Examines the biblical theological foundations of God's plan for global redemption throughout the Old and New Testament. The student will explore the eternal purpose of God for humanity, the state of those who have not heard the gospel, and the application of the missional mandate to various cultures.

Examines the origin and nature of communities from a Christian theological perspective. Students will learn about God’s purpose for society in his created order and about the place of humanity in it. Group discussions, book reviews, research papers, quizzes, and other assignments will help the student understand the theology of community portrayed in Scripture and traditions.

What are the theological and Biblical rationales for Christian charity? Students will apply principles to develop a framework for serving the poor in the community with one’s God-given possessions. Group discussions, book reviews, research papers, quizzes, and other assignments will help the student integrate faith with economics in a global situation of disparity between wealthy and poor communities.

Examines the Biblical and theological understanding of human nature, specifically as it relates to race and ethnicity. Students will develop a theology of race and ethnicity that will prepare them to love their neighbors of all cultures as they engage contemporary issues such as racism, immigration, justice, and the refugee crisis.

Examines the principles of restorative justice from a theological perspective and their application to human suffering. The biblical narrative of God’s love for the poor, widows, orphans, and foreigners will serve as the basis for study and practice. Group discussions, book reviews, research papers, and quizzes will help the student them better understand and engage in restorative justice.

This course provides an overview of theological and biblical holistic reconciliation. Special emphasis is given to the meaning, vision and context of reconciliation; the church, mission, and the hope for reconciliation; and the scope and process of reconciliation. The goal is equip students to comprehend that Christian faith understands reconciliation as the mission of God in the world, accomplished in the work of Jesus Christ, and entrusted to the church. When completed, the course will enable students to apply this knowledge in their future missional engagement.
