The Trinity Changes Everything
Overview: Many of us are familiar with the doctrine of the trinity and would defend it as a biblical truth. But what are its practical implications? What about your faith would be different if God were not triune? In this elective, we’ll look at how God has revealed Himself in Scripture and how the beauty of His triune nature shapes all that we are and do as believers, from our salvation to our worship.
Teachers: Dan Olinger, Dave Gerdt
What in the World Is God Doing (and How is HBC Involved)?
Overview: Join us as we look at the overarching questions as well as the practical application questions relating to missions. We seek to understand what is (and what is not) missions. We examine some basic Biblical theology of missions. We also look at the real world we live in and consider how timeless Biblical truth is best communicated in a fast-changing world. Finally, we consider the application of all of this to how we advance the gospel through our mission practice at Heritage Bible Church.
Teachers: Mark Vowels, Nathan Gallion
