Missional Theology Track Bundle Courses
Following the themes of God’s people, in God’s place, under God’s rule, Tim Chester walks us through the bible as the story of God's mission to redeem the world through his Son. Along the way you’ll find out why the church is so central to mission, and how to see everyday life through the gospel lens. This course is not only an introduction and refresher on biblical theology, it will cast a vision for mission in everyday life, through the local church.
God has spoken to his people through the story of his Son, Jesus. As Christians, we find our identity and purpose as we engage with the stories, letters, poems, prophecies, histories etc., contained within the Bible’s bigger story. This course is deeply practical. You will need your Bible with you to work through multiple exercises on Bible texts. You will learn to understand texts in the context of the bigger story and the immediate context of the book of the Bible they appear in. Then you will learn how to apply the words of the Bible today.
All that Christ has achieved for his people is ours through our union with him. Heart change and mission flow out of who Jesus is, and how we are bound to him by faith. This course will teach you to understand and enjoy your relationship with Jesus in everyday life on mission.
All Christians need a solid grounding in the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith. In this course you will walk through key doctrines with the help of the Nicene Creed, working them through to practical application in life and mission. The course encourages students to reconnect theology to practice and to enjoy big truths about God and the gospel in the routines of everyday life.
The Holy Spirit is often the forgotten member of the Trinity or His work is emphasised apart from the gospel. This course helps us see the central role of the Holy Spirit in creation and redemption. Understanding the work of the Holy Spirit empowers and shapes gospel mission and discipleship in the local church.
Learn how to open the bible with friends, both Christians and non-Christians, and get the most out of your time together in interactive bible study. Learn from some of the best bible teachers how to get the point of a passage across and address people’s hearts with the gospel. You will also be introduced to storying as a method for opening the bible with people./p>
