*Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

Session 1: Divine Sovereignty

Session 2: Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility

Session 3: Evangelism

Session 4: Divine Sovereignty and Evangelism

This 4-week explores the relationship between evangelism and the God’s sovereignty. More specifically, it deals with these 2 questions: if God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelise? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? This course is most suitable for those who yearn to evangelise and want to find out how God’s sovereignty over salvation should inform and impact the way they evangelise.

Session 1: Total Depravity & Irresistible Grace

Session 2: Limited Atonement

Session 3: Unconditional Election & Perseverance of the Saints

This 3-week course explores the five famous doctrines of grace associated with Calvinism. Where is the Scriptural support for these 5 points? Can we agree to disagree on some of these points?
