This core course examines the BIC U.S.’ understandings of God’s Kingdom, the Church, and its mission. In this course, participants trace the Church’s development following the New Testament period, paying particular attention to the Anabaptist movement. Highlighting the nature of community, a two-kingdom theology, and the Church’s role in peacemaking, this course explores the BIC’s views on leadership, mission, and ethical living.
