Two Year Diploma in Christian Ministry Course Information

This two year course offers a Diploma in Christian Ministry, and is divided into three terms each year. Each term is over an 8 week period on Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. A 1,000word assessment is set for each of the six modules.

In this module we will be looking at the three fundamental pillars of Systematic Theology with Christian thinking. These are Trinity, Incarnation and Atonement. The student will gain a mature understanding of each of these areas of doctrine, the implications they have for Christian life and a Christian world-view, and how they may be applied to the contemporary context (both local church, and wider society).

The uniqueness and significance of each of these doctrines to the Christian faith will be examined in turn. We will begin with Trinity – the doctrine that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all distinct, yet all are the One God. We move on to the Incarnation – the doctrine that God became fully human in the person of Jesus Christ, without undermining his deity. We finish with the Atonement – the doctrine that the work and person of Jesus Christ (especially in his death and resurrection) restores relationship with God.
