Course Description: A systematic study of the Church in relation to the eternal purpose of God and what this implies for this present generation. Particular care is taken to give a scriptural analysis of what God is saying to the Church today. In society today, many Christians do not see the need to be regularly involved with the local church. This course will provide the biblical basis for the place and eternal purpose of the local church and offer practical application for each believer's role in it. The goal is to lead the student to have the same vision, passion and commitment to the church that Jesus has.
- To provide a Biblical understanding of the place of the Church in the purpose of God.
- To define the Church in a manner consistent with the Scripture.
- To examine the Biblical principles of revival and restoration and their application to the Church.
- To survey the pattern of decline and restoration in the history of the Church.
- To encourage the student to accept the same vision, passion and commitment to the Church that Jesus has.
