Northshore U is a ministry of Northshore Community Church and is designed to help you deepen your understanding of God’s word and learn to follow Him more passionately. These classes dig deeper into the text and themes of the Bible as well as offer practical training in following Jesus.
This session, I am teaching an 8-week class called Who Needs Theology? Your theology—your thoughts on God—are your most important thoughts because they determine everything else in your life. If this is true, then we ought to dig deeper into what we believe and why we believe it. In this Northshore U class, we will explore how the Bible reveals who God is, who we are, and how He saves us to be the church for the world. If you want a fancy term for what we’ll explore, it will be a crash course in “systematic theology.”
We’ll cover the following topics:
1 – Who Needs Theology?
2 – The Bible (the nature of revelation, inspiration, inerrancy)
3 – The Trinity (God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
4 – People & Sin (The image of God, the nature of sin)
5 – Salvation & the Work of Jesus Christ (the doctrine of atonement)
6 – The Church (the people of God & our mission)
7 – Things to Come (end times, heaven, & hell)
8 – Putting It All Together (how to live a theologically shaped life)
As part of the class experience, we will read Know What You Believe by Paul E. Little.
The class begins Thursday, September 24 from 6:30-8 pm at Northshore. Children’s Ministry is provided for infants through 4th grade.
