God

If God is Trinity, what does that mean for Christians?

STUDENTS WILL KNOW THAT:

  • Christians believe in God as Trinity, and that the different roles of the three persons in one God can be seen as exemplifying the relational nature of God and the importance of self-giving love in Christian practice
  • Ideas of God have varied (and still do) within the Christian church, and that different emphases lead to different ways of living
  • Christians can use the Bible to describe God in different ways.
2

Creation

STUDENTS WILL KNOW THAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE:

  • Creation reveals something about the nature of God (for example, powerful, involved in human life, source of all life on earth), and reminds humans of their place as dependent upon the Creator.
  • Humans have a responsibility to creation, as stewards. 
  • Spring Term

The FALL - Why are people good and bad?
