Various Christian traditions respond to the person of the Holy Spirit in different ways. Although one might not always agree with other church traditions, it is important to understand them, or maybe even appreciate their distinct emphases. This course will begin by grounding you in a biblical account of the Holy Spirit with a focus on Jesus’ teaching. You will then explore the doctrine of the Holy Spirit in historical theology. At this point, you would have a strong foundation to examine the Holy Spirit from a global perspective, namely, pentecostalisation and the Holy Spirit in African indigenous churches. In addition, you will learn about the Holy Spirit’s role in salvation and spiritual gifts. The course will culminate in an application of what you have learnt for your own life and ministry.
