Course Description:

Christian Integration Seminar 1 (Holy Spirit)

A seminar on the integration of faith and life through the work of the Holy Spirit. It will cover topics that include the Spirit’s works in creation, revelation, and the inspiration of the Scriptures, in the work of Christ and the application of his death and resurrection that serves as the basis for the progressive and holistic sanctification towards Christ-likeness in every aspect of life.

Christian Integration Seminar 2 (Salvation)

This seminar will look at the significant role of the Holy Spirit in the application of the finished work of Christ, the benefits of union with Christ, namely, regeneration, reconciliation, justification, sanctification, and the expression of that union in the church. Due attention will be given to the implications of the study for academic disciplines and professional life.
