Discover the doctrinal truths of the Word of God.

ABWE On-Campus Course

Basic Missional Theology is a two part Bible course designed to provide you with an understanding of the doctrinal truths of the Word of God. Drawing on examples from a variety of cultures, the course illustrates the ways worldview, culture, and human problems influence the development of theology around the world.

The classroom portion of this course engages students in discussions and activities that foster clear thinking about the teachings of the Scriptures, and encourage the development of critical skills for understanding and influencing healthy theological development within and across cultures.

Basic Missional Theology includes 44 hours of in class instruction over a two week span (Monday through Friday). Students are expected to read the appropriate section of the assigned textbook before the class (includes reading the Prolegomena unit, which will be supplied to the student early enough to allow preparation for Monday).


Online Course

Most courses on Bible Doctrines and Basic Theology are written to help students know Christian theology in a North American “Christian” context. But cross-cultural missionaries need to be equipped to do (or apply) theology in religious worldview contexts that are dominated by Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Judaistic, Spiritist, post modern, philosophical materialistic, or other theological constructs. This course covers each of the major subdisciplines of systematic theology, but helps the student to understand them in the contexts of ministering to unbelievers who adhere to pagan worldview systems, or to believers whose theological views have been deeply infected by those systems.

Due to the interactive application of theology to religious worldview contexts received in the on-campus course, the online course is only available for those who cannot attend the on-campus course due to extenuating circumstances.
