Systematic Theology

Wednesdays Sept 2021 - May 2022
6:30pm - 8:00pm
Taught by Pastor Patrick J. Griffiths

What is Systematic Theology? "Systematic" refers to something being put into a system. Systematic theology is, therefore, the division of theology into systems that explain its various areas. When studying topics such as "salvation", there are numerous passages in various books of the Bible that when compiled give a more complete picture than studying an individual book of the Bible. Topics covered address the statements found in our Statement of Faith.
