5.  Systematic Theology 3

This course introduces the student to three fundamental doctrines of systematic theology: Soteriology (the doctrine of salvation), Ecclesiology (the doctrine of the church), and Eschatology (the doctrine of last things). These three interconnected areas of theology describe the unfolding of God’s plan for His people: He redeems them by Christ, He builds them into His church, and He brings them into their eternal destiny. The restoration purposes God began in the garden will be brought to completion at the return of Christ.
