What We Believe, And Why
Team taught. $50. 2 CEU credits.
We all have a theology, but many people do not actually know what they believe, and yet those beliefs are propelling their actions. This is a dangerous situation. Unfortunately, many people do not know what they do not know. This Certificate will walk you through a basic evangelical understanding of God and his world, and then challenge you to write your own statement of beliefs.
Foundations in Theological Studies ($95)
(5 CEU credits, $120)
All Christians have been commissioned by Christ to be His agents of hope in the world. As ministry leaders we share an even greater responsibility to share the Good News of God to men and women who desperately need to come into personal relationship with Him. But can we be truly effective in our 21st century context lacking a biblical understanding of the gospel message? And how do we communicate that gospel in an increasingly pluralistic world where our truth claims find a very different reception from even a generation ago.
Foundations in Christian Theology ($35)

We all have a theology, but many people do not actually know what they believe, and yet those beliefs are propelling their actions. A dangerous situation.

Christians in the Marketplace
Team taught. $65. 3 CEU credits.
Many people spend far more time in the marketplace than they do in the church. How do they represent Christ in this critical mission field? How do business leaders apply biblical principles to their leadership and interaction with others in the marketplace in such a way that Christ is glorified and men and women are born into the Kingdom of God? In this track you will find a variety of topics, from Theology of Work to Mentoring to Theology and Economics to Implementation of Theology of Work.
