This course introduces students to what Thomas C. Oden refers to as the ancient ecumenical consensus of Christian teaching. The structure follows the ancient baptismal creed, commonly called the Apostles’ Creed, as students engage the basic beliefs of the Christian faith concerning God the Father, creation, Christian anthropology, Christology, soteriology, the Holy Spirit, ecclesiology, and eschatology.
