Course Description Date/Time/Venue Registration
Five Points – Towards a Deeper Experience of God’s Grace

Session 1: Total Depravity & Irresistible Grace

Session 2: Limited Atonement

Session 3: Unconditional Election & Perseverance of the Saints

This 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? This course is for Christians who appreciate theological nuances, and are willing to participate in a robust discussion on these cherished (and often challenged) doctrines among evangelicals.

God’s Big Picture – Tracing the Storyline of the Bible

Session 1: The pattern of the kingdom & the perished kingdom

Session 2: The promised kingdom & the partial kingdom

Session 3: The prophesied kingdom & the present kingdom

Session 4: The proclaimed kingdom & the perfected kingdom 

This course provides an overview of the Bible showing how the different parts fit beautifully together under the theme of the kingdom of God. Especially helpful for those wanting to grow in biblical theology, the course points ultimately to the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.
