New Testament Survey
Instructor: Shuwanda Williams
The purpose of the New Testament Survey is to introduce you to a basic understanding and lead you to an inquiring study of the New Testament. You will be learning information about the social, historical, cultural, and religious backgrounds of the early church. Since this course is an introductory course, our survey review of each area will be limited; however, you will be acquiring confidence in your ability to understand and think theologically about the New Testament and its continuing importance for the modern Christian Church. You will understand how the scriptural foundations found in the New Testament can serve as a resource for you to live out the abundant life God has so ordained. If you are new Christian, it will give you an appetite to study the Word with more diligence. For those experienced in the faith, it will open up new truths to keep you growing in your Christian faith. Wherever you are in your Christian development, the class will meet you at your point of need.

Book Of Revelation
Instructor: Robert Matthews
Understanding Jesus Christ is the foundation for understanding true Christianity, which is believing and living by His teachings and striving to imitate His perfect life.

It will also help prepare you to know how to explain to others our purpose in life and what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. To be a true disciple of Christ means not only to be an admirer and follower, not only to obey and imitate Him, but to try to become like Him in every way. This class will help you toward that goal.
