FAITH DEVELOPMENT pertains to the developmental capacity for faith as meaning making. As such, it provides identity and is considered a basic stage developmental theory in the area of human development. It also leads to maturity.

The growth and development of the nation of Israel and the Church, as set forth in Scripture, are analyzed from a faith development perspective. The benefits of such a study are the following:

  • Understanding the correspondence and unity between the Old and New Testaments
  • Insight into the purpose of the Law given in the Old Testament and in the ceremonial rituals
  • A perspective of God's actions throughout history and today
  • A better understanding of God and human nature
  • A view of the revealed end from the beginning and insight into the events in between
  • Clarification of the Judeo-Christian connection
  • A comprehension of faith as meaning making from a scriptural perspective
