Course Description

Register for the Dimensions of the Faith Certificate program here. By registering, you will be able to receive a certificate of completion once you finish all the courses. 

Welcome to the Dimensions of the Faith program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. We are excited that you are taking steps to deepen your faith by exploring this course. We encourage you to complete all ten courses which make up the Dimensions of the Faith program by registering here

The Dimensions of the Faith series is developed with the firm conviction that a life of faith and obedience in Jesus Christ is based upon a working knowledge of Godʼs word. You cannot obey what you do not know.

For this reason, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary has developed the Dimensions of the Faith series for any Christian who desires foundational knowledge in the areas of Old and New Testament, Biblical Interpretation, Church History, Theology, and Missions. The goals of each course are the following: 
  1. To paint the big picture of what you are learning
  2. To provide you with the basic content
  3. To introduce you to key words that will enlarge your capacity for knowing
  4. To guide you to understand how greater knowledge of Godʼs word can be applied naturally to everyday life and service
  5. To direct you to valuable resources as Godʼs word whets your appetite for further study
The Dimensions of the Faith series is designed to be used in a variety of settings. You may wish to use the materials as a resource for your own spiritual growth and enrichment. You may also wish to study the materials as a group. The series may be used as a leadership tool for churches or as a training tool on the mission field. We encourage those of you who are pastors to use the series with your ruling boards or your volunteer teaching staffs. A certificate is available for those who complete all ten courses of the Dimensions of the Faith series.

In addition to the certificate, students who complete the Dimensions of the Faith series before enrolling as students at one of Gordon-Conwell's campuses are eligible to apply for a scholarship worth up to $1000 toward the first course of study.

Excellent and important course for theo students

His book was the textbook for my course at seminary, and his lectures supplemented the class. The course and his book enrichened my lay view of the Scriptures, enhancing the knowledge and grace of the Bible.


I find the lectures to be great but, since the website is down and we have been routed to itunes U I can no longer get the notes. The authors book has not been offered either.?????
