C OURSE D ESCRIPTION A course completing the study of systematic theology with special attention given to the doctrines of the person and work of Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the church, and last things. Such issues as nature and extent of salvation, the origin, nature and future of the church, and the eternal state are explored. II. R ATIONALE In relation to God, these doctrines are those that detail His work to glorify Himself in his creation. In relation to pastoral and soul care ministries, those doctrines related to the human predicament and the work of God to bring wholeness and healing are especially important. Part of that healing is the building of a new community, which functions to establish believers and hold them accountable to their commitment to Christ “till He comes.” III.
