We believe that all people are created in the image of God and therefore able and desirous to engage in a deep level of theological training that has traditionally only been offered at seminaries. TTP courses are designed with you in mind with a step by step comprehensive program.
The courses follow a very specific and intentional order. They are all designed with the previous and following courses in mind. Once one has taken the Introduction to Theology course, they can then move on to any of the other five courses, but students should procede in the suggested order.
Introduction to Theology: This is a theological studies methods course. Its primary purpose is to teach you skills for developing a Christian mind, by helping you construct a solid foundation for thinking through life's most important issues. Why be concerned with theology? What is truth? Is there such a thing? Can we be certain that our truth is the right truth? What is the Christian view of truth? How do we respond to a culture that devalues truth? Does God still communicate through direct encounters today?
Bibliology and Hermeneutics: This course focuses on the authority, nature, and interpretation (hermeneutics) of the Scriptures. It is designed to help students work through issues that concern the trust they place in the Bible and its interpretation. Issues like: Is the Bible that we have today the same as when it was originally written? Do we have the right books? How do we know that the Bible is inspired by God? How do we interpret Scripture?
Trinitarianism: Who is God? Better yet, what is God? Can we know for certain that He exists? If so, how? How can God be one yet three? How can Christ be both God and man? Why didn't Christ know the time of His coming?
Humanity and Sin: Why did God create man? What is man? What happened when Adam sinned? Are we condemned for the sin of another? Do we have a free will? Men and women: what is the big difference?
Soteriology: This course is a study of the nature of salvation. Focus will be made on the doctrine of justification - the central issue of the Reformation. Much time will be spent attempting to understand the ongoing debate between God's sovereignty in salvation and man's responsibility. It will answers questions such as: Are we really predestined by God? If so, isn't this unfair? Why did Christ die on the cross? Did he pay for all sins or just the sins of the elect? What is the difference between Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestants with regard to salvation? Can a person lose their salvation? If so, how? Is Christ the only way to heaven? What about those who have never heard?
Ecclesiology and Eschatology: What is the nature of the Church? What is the difference between dispensational and covenant theologians with regard to the church? What should the Church be doing? What are the gifts God has given to the church? What is the difference in premillennialism, amillennialism, and postmillennialism? What is the tribulation? Is there such a thing as hell?
