Intensive Course: The Nature and Unity of the Church

In this course, we shall explore various aspects of the doctrine of the church (ecclesiology). Our main focus is on the unity of the church. It is not possible, however, to deal with the unity of the church without also discussing some aspects of the nature of the church. For that reason, we shall explore ecclesiology from biblical, historical, theological and practical perspectives. We shall use each perspective to build the overall argument concerning the importance of the church and its unity.
