Why We Believe What We Believe

Like most Christian institutions these days, the Moody Bible Institute has a doctrinal statement. Yet sometimes we need a little more, because sometimes a paragraph just isn’t enough—because you want to dig deeper, you want to know why. In Standing Firm, professors from Moody break down, expand, and elucidate the 11 theological topics of Moody’s doctrinal statement, and why they each matter for you and me. These topics include:

  • Theology Proper
  • General and Special Revelation
  • Authority
  • Jesus
  • Creation & Fall
  • Soteriology
  • The Church
  • Eschatology
  • Sign Gifts
  • Gender Roles
  • Sexuality
