The ultimate goal of Theological Studies is to ensure that the churchís proclamation and the individualís life is faithful to Godís revelation of Himself in Scripture. Students with good theological training will know how to evaluate critically their own personal theological leaning, be aware and respectful of other theological positions, and be able to distinguish those values that are distinctly Christian from those that the secular world espouses
