COURSE DESCRIPTION: 
• The Church of the Nazarene is a “Wesleyan-holiness” church. By this designation, we affirm that the theology of John Wesley undergirds and informs both our theological conclusions and our theological method. Wesleyanism’s “warm heart” of holiness is the heart of Nazarene ministry, and holiness is the lens through which Wesley’s theology and example should be read. That is why this course is crucial to theological education of the ministers of the Church of the Nazarene, and thus crucial to the denomination as a whole as we answer the call to teach, preach, and minister as Wesleyans.
• This course addresses the inseparable connection between the theology of the Church of the Nazarene and the theology (content and method) of John Wesley. It will address each systematic category in turn, noting both Wesley’s fidelity to tradition and his own constructive, creative thought. Special emphasis will be given to soteriological themes and their practical implications. The student will be able to display both knowledge of the content of this course, as well as personal and professional skills that arise out of the theology and spiritual formation in the Wesleyan tradition.
