About Bachelor of Arts in Theology Bachelors Degree program.

The subject and object of theology is God. Ones concept of God and
ones attitude toward Him are the determining factors in building both
life and character. As a strong foundation is essential for a
superstructure, Christian doctrine serves as the foundation for the
development of an individuals body, mind and spirit. These doctrinal
truths are found in the incarnate and written Word of God revealed to us
in divine revelation. There is an unbroken chain of continuity between
what one believes in the here and now, the kind of person one will be,
and ones place of abode in the hereafter.

Personal salvation, sound character and holy influence are dependent
on the acquisition of the correct tenets of faith. Every Christian is
responsible, according to his/her capacity and opportunity, to discover
and accept Christian doctrine. In studying the doctrinal truths of the
Bible, one enters into companionship with some of the purest and best
minds of the ages like St. Paul, St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John
Calvin, John Wesley and others.
