Major Description

This major has been designed to prepare students in to work in various ministries in the Christian faith. The philosophy of Christianity is a way of life. It involves the reason for human life, why human life was created and sustained by God and nourished by His Spirit. Christian Philosophy tells us where our human life is destined to lead us in the future. It is the apostle John (through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit) who lays the foundation of human life in his Gospel. He writes in John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend (over take) it. This is the true “life” that mankind must adopt. It is our emulating and living that particular “life” that enlightens us with true knowledge.
