Course Descriptions
The Essence of ‘Good News’

The Gospels

This course explores the context, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ told through the four unique Gospel narratives. As arguably the most read books of the Bible, the Gospels offer so much more rich context and content that can deepen our faith and bring us closer to the person of Jesus.

Equip and Inspire Believers


This course is purposed to equip and inspire believers to share their faith and to be prepared to face hard and difficult conversations, as is increasingly common in our society. Some topics covered are morality, the distinction of Christianity, the proof of the resurrection, and the problem of pain.

The Biblical Framework of Money

Biblical Finances

This course digs deeper into how we view and choose to manage our finances. We start by addressing the biblical framework of money and shift into more practical topics like how to build a budget.

Deepen Interactions with Scripture

Bible Study Methods

This course is intended to help students learn practical tools for deepening their interactions with scripture. Focusing on an inductive method, this course covers both the importance for studying the Word and coaches students through what that looks like.

The Beliefs of the Church

The Church

This course digs into the history of the Church, exploring back to the Apostolic Era and the early Church fathers and builds from their to outline the works and marks of a holy, united, Christ-centered, Gospel-focused church. Topics include: Church history, Orthodox beliefs, ordinances, order, evangelism, edification, and worship.

Key Theological Truths

Essential Theology

This course covers the key theological truths that shape our faith. Topics covered in Essential Theology include: Trinitarianism, the Characteristics of God, the inerrancy of the Word, the condition of man, the person of Jesus, the work of salvation, sanctification, the Church, and the future hope.

Live By The Spirit

Spiritual Life

The Definition of Worship

Theology of Worship

This course teaches on the definition of worship and how the theme of worship is seen throughout all Scripture. The primary topics covered drive towards an understanding that worship is a lifestyle, not just an activity on Sunday mornings.

The Current State of Missions

World Missions
