Course Description: Basic Doctrine is a study of the most important beliefs of Christianity. The purpose of this course is to set a solid foundation for sound Christian thinking. Every other PBC course builds on these concepts. Basic Doctrine provides not only a foundation, but a framework for thinking; about God, his purposes and our lives. It's the basis of our values, beliefs and life's decisions. You cannot enjoy a meaningful Christian life without understanding at least some of the fundamental beliefs of the faith. This challenging class provides a concise and systematic understanding of the importance of those beliefs.
Section One Content: This course will help you answer the following questions…
- How can we know God? How does he reveal Himself to us?
- How did we get the Bible? How do we know it is really inspired of God?
- Who is the person of God and what is His nature?
- Who is the Holy Spirit? What does he do and how do we relate to him?
- Why did God create Angels? What are they like and what do they do?
- Who is Satan and his demons? What is a Christian’s authority in relation to them?
- Why did God create Man? What is man’s purpose?
- What went wrong with man? Why is there a mess in the earth? How can we conquer sin?
Basic Doctrine will put these beliefs in a logical sequence and then tying them together to show the student how these beliefs interact with the others.
