Welcome to this research guide for Soteriology. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
This course is a study of the doctrine of salvation—the work of Christ in bringing lost people into fellowship with God. These doctrines are treated separately and in a logical progression—a kind of “order of salvation.” This study includes the doctrines of repentance, faith, conversion, regeneration, justification, adoption, sanctification, and prayer in the life of a Christian. Preliminary consideration is given to the grace of God as the source of our salvation and to the biblical teaching on predestination and election. It avoids the extremes of emphasis on either the initiative of God or the initiative of humankind in the process and progress of salvation. The course carefully analyzes biblical passages relating to salvation and evaluates historical and contemporary views of salvation. The twelve lessons stress applying salvation truths personally and sharing them with our contemporaries.
Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.

This short document explains the theory and practices behind the Global University Instructional Design that seeks to approximate the interaction of a classroom professor with students.
