For since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen… —Romans 1:18 (NIV)
Theos is the Greek word for “God,” and -ology emerges from the Greek word logos, or “word.” What we believe about God—his essential nature and relationship with the world and humankind—profoundly influences our worldview. Our intellectual and relational commitments, moral systems, service, and work are shaped by our theologies—both explicit and implicit. As we engage theology, our view of God deepens and broadens, as does our view and care for the entire created order. At Upper House, we study scripture as well as historic and contemporary Christian writings to illuminate God’s character, the nature of the Trinity, God’s care for humanity, our call to faithful service, and the role of the Church (the Body of Christ) in God’s mission for the world. We draw on carefully curated local and global resources in this ongoing endeavor.
