An examination of the biblical and theological principles of Christian prayer and their application in life and ministry.

COURSE DESCRIPTION A study of the world of the New Testament (Jewish and Greco-Roman backgrounds), basic literary features, and theological significance of Matthew through Acts and the origin of the New Testament canon. A concern for preaching, teaching, and Christian living will guide lectures, discussions and requirements.
This course is a study of the religious cults and new religious movements, their origins, history, nature, and worldviews. The course will seek to understand the appeal of cults, how they often cloak themselves in biblical and contemporary terminology and where they differ from historic Christianity’s worldview. The intent of the course is to equip Christians to recognize and respond appropriately to the cults as they complete with mainstream Christianity for the allegiance of people.
