The class notes for this course are a summary of Dr. Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology. This course takes the student through seven major doctrines highlighted in Grudem’s manual, which are also highlighted in Scripture. These seven doctrines provide the basic framework of the Christian faith.
It is through understanding these seven major doctrines that Christians can grow significantly in their faith in the following ways:
- Finding confidence in the Word of God,
- Coming to understand more of who God is, and to worship Him,
- Discovering how God sees human beings and their need,
- Learning how God has provided for that need through Jesus Christ,
- Understanding how God applies the work of Christ to fallen human beings,
- Depending on the body into which God has placed people He has saved,
- Looking forward to the future with hope in Jesus Christ.
Christians who have a firm grasp on these truths are not easily deceived or shaken when errors or troubles come. They find it easier to make decisions that please God and also help other people who are facing hard problems. Such Christians are happier and more grateful and hopeful and their lives bring glory to God in an anti-God world.
If these are the joys you seek in Jesus, welcome to ABTC Systematic Theology!
