An exploration of the doctrinal heritage of United Methodism: its sources, distinctive marks, development in the United States, and relation to contemporary doctrinal standards and practices of the UMC. This course meets the disciplinary requirements for ordination to elder or permanent deacon or diaconal ministry in the UMC.
"Doctrine" is "what the church teaches about Christian faith." This is the course for building the knowledge and skills needed
1) to engage in United Methodist theological debates about what to teach, and
2) to help lay persons make sense of Methodist ways of talking about and living Christian faith.
