Radius Theological Institute will seek to achieve our purpose through several avenues of education for the church and the academy.
Theological Training for Missionaries
RTI will offer a twelve-week intensive training course twice per year, in cooperation with Radius International. Our desire is to sharpen students in their ability to understand and articulate the Christian faith clearly so that they are able to teach and translate well in another language and culture. Missionary candidates pursuing unreached language groups are attempting to reach those who have radically different views of God, man, sin, and Christ. It is difficult to articulate a high level doctrine like the Trinity in English, let alone to translate that truth into another language. Our goal is to help students understand these doctrines deeply so they are equipped, for example, to help a Muslim understand why God is triune. This training is non-denominational and is not tailored toward a specific ecclesial structure.
Theological Renewal for Pastors, Elders, Deacons, and other church leaders
RTI will offer refresher courses in a modular format to help church leaders grow in their understanding of the doctrines of God, Christ, man, sin, and salvation. The church is called to faithfully teach these doctrines and make disciples in an ever-changing world. Our desire is to help church leaders develop the wisdom to meet this high calling.
Theological Training for Church Members
RTI will offer basic doctrine courses for the average church member. We want to see church members equipped to understand God, Christ, man, sin, and salvation so that they might better reach their neighbors and understand how to pray for their missionaries.
Theological Research and Writing for the Church and Academy
RTI will seek to advance classical Christian doctrine and practice through research and writing. The contemporary church is often blown to and fro by every wind of doctrine. Our desire is to aid the church in her contemporary witness to traditional Christian orthodoxy through excellent written communication and audio / video production.
