The Holy Spirit and the Church

240 The Holy Spirit and the Church

The Holy Spirit is one of the three members of the Trinity in the Christian understanding of God, and possibly the least understood, least emphasized or least appreciated among the Three.  This class will seek to explore the history of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, the work of the Holy Spirit as documented in the Old Testament, the life of Jesus, and the life of the Church. The course will also examine the theology, nature and history of the church (ecclesiology), focusing on the work of the Holy Spirit to inaugurate, empower and gift it for the effective ministry of the Gospel among God’s people.
