well as corporate—within the life of the church. Guiding principles constituting biblical ministry within the curriculum

are established.

BIB349 Dynamics of Grace (3)

The course will examine why the gospel is the energizing truth that drives the believer’s sanctification. In-depth attention

Attention will also be given to the biblical connection between the gospel and the believer’s worship, walk, warfare,

witness, oneness, and worldview. The practical theology of this course is designed especially to address the “disconnect”

which commonly exists between faith and life, between doctrine and practice.
