Students explore the meaning and significance of the theology linked to each of the three articles of the Apostles Creed. This is done with reference to the contemporary context in which students do theology. The theological focus in the unit is Lutheran with a Christological emphasis, and using an approach which invites students to reflect theologically on the Christian faith in the context of a religiously diverse world.
