Theology

Bible

At Dordt College, every course is about understanding God's Word and our proper response to it. Nevertheless, theology has an important role in advancing Christian service through deepening knowledge of God, Scripture, and God's mission.

  • Devoted to Christ and the Kingdom of God
    You will grow in love and service to God and his world.
  • Orthodox in Faith and Life
    You will develop an awareness of major developments in the church's expression of her faith throughout history and today.
  • Reformational in Engaging God's Creation
    You will engage the world as image bearers of God and Christian agents of reconciliation in relationship to God, other humans, and God's creation.
  • Discipleship in Following Christ
    You will experience the biblical narrative to call you to continue to live the biblical drama as disciples of Christ in the world.
  • Training in Service of God for the World
    You will develop creative ways to live and express the biblical message in contemporary culture.

Because many students take theology courses out of personal interest rather than as part of a formal program, you'll find theology classes to be a place to interact with students from across campus and learn from the insights they bring from their disciplines.
