The identity of a theologian might sound a bit scary and ambitious for most believers. But every day we make decisions based on core beliefs, and whether we know it or not, we are all theologians; meaning the things we believe about God inform the way we live.
Theology is the “study of the nature of God.” So if our minds better understood the truth of God’s character and power, our lives could be powerfully shaped towards more godly, kind, and sacrificial examples of Christ.
You might say that theology is the root of all Christian identities, but this module will focus on specific and core Biblical theology that all Christians must know, understand, believe and live. And the more we know the right thoughts about God, the more we have the ability to live as we were intended.
Ultimately the goal of theology is meant to drive us to a greater worship of God, and a greater delight in Jesus’s death and resurrection on the cross on our behalf. Good theology doesn’t create dogmatic, stiff minds, but full and joyful hearts.
