Ecclesiology: Pilgrim Church

Course Level: Intermediate

Course Summary

The Pilgrim Church is the second in a series of three courses in ecclesiology, the theology of church.  Building on the understanding of church developed in The Beginnings of the Church, this course continues to explore how the Church, as a living organism through the centuries, both maintains its continuity with Jesus and reshapes its own self-understanding. We will see how the Church continually reconstitutes itself through its decisions in meeting the challenges of each age. 

Prerequisites for this course include these VCLFF courses:  "Scripture:  New Testament," "Images of Jesus (or Christology)," and "Ecclesiology: The Beginnings of the Church." 
[Catechists and lay ecclesial ministers are required to take all three courses in order.]

Successful completion of this course earns 2.5 CEU's.
