Systematic Theology
Wednesdays
6:30pm - 8:00pm
Feb 2017 - May 2017
Taught by Pastor Giles Litzner

Although it is 'the study of God,' theology has a reputation for being dry, abstract, and irrelevant for daily living. Many Christians assume that we can just experience God in a personal relationship apart from doctrine, but that's impossible. You cannot experience God without knowing who He is, what He has done, and who you are in relation to Him. Even our most basic Christian experiences and commitments are theological.
(Michael Horton, Pilgrim Theology, 14).
