Abstract
The aim of this research is to identify the problem, but to also offer a solution (an eight-week theology class) that will aid the church in teaching her members key theological information to help them know why they believe what they believe. This research and development of an eight-week theology class for the church is framed in three hypotheses: (1) After this class, church members will have an increased knowledge and understanding of essential doctrines of the Christian faith, (2) After this class, church members will be able to communicate the essential doctrines of the Christian faith, and (3) After this class, church members will value theological understanding more than they did before the class. These hypotheses were studied quantitatively using the pre/posttest model and qualitatively using pre/posttest interviews.
