Spiritual Warfare

Jesus came to give us life abundantly (John 10:10), yet so many people are not living a victorious Christian life. Sometimes defeat is the result of not crucifying the flesh. Other times Christians aren’t living in Christian victory because of spiritual warfare, yet so few people are versed in what the Bible says about spiritual warfare. In responds to that need, this course explores the storyline of spiritual warfare in scripture and the place of spiritual warfare in personal discipleship and ministry.

This course will meet every Thursday night from 6:30PM—8:30PM Central Time. The course is polysynchronous meaning that students can attend class at WBS in-person, live via zoom, or watch the recorded zoom sessions on their own schedule.

Upon completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Summarize the storyline of spiritual warfare in scripture.

  • Articulate the biblical basis for supernatural beings.

  • Understand and explain the biblical concept of cosmic geography and its role in spiritual warfare.

  • Integrate their understanding of spiritual warfare with their spiritual journey and life experience.

  • Have the basic capabilities to lead others in deliverance from the power of sin through discipleship counseling.

The lectures will cover a biblical and theological understanding of the spiritual realm, with emphasis also given to practical application in the Christian’s life. Lectures will cover the biblical basis for spiritual warfare (e.g., angelology, demonology, theodicy, the atonement, salvation, and freedom in Christ) as well as practical steps for freedom in Christ.

  • Affirmation of Faith

    Read the statement below and indicate your acceptance by checking the box at the bottom of the page
  • I affirm that there is only One True God, whose existence, nature, and character are revealed in the Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The One True God is a Trinity of Persons — God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three divine Persons are eternally distinct from one another, but are not three different divine beings. They are of the same essence and all Three Persons share equally in divinity and are together the One True God.

    I affirm that the Second Person of the Trinity -- God the Son -- became incarnate as the human man Jesus of Nazareth. He was born of the Virgin Mary fully human and fully God. This Jesus is the one and only means to humanity’s redemption, because he is the God-man. In his life and his work he alone reconciles to God all who truly have faith in him. In him we see most fully the character of God and we are shown most clearly the kind of life that God calls his Church to live out in the world.

    I affirm that salvation from sin is necessary, because human beings are separated from the Triune God by sin and disobedience. The salvation that we need is only possible for us because the Holy Trinity has mercifully acted in grace to redeem us. This grace alone is the source of salvation; and God's grace is revealed and enacted ultimately in the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to be the Savior of the World. His life, death, resurrection and ascension make possible forgiveness from sin and sanctification for those who receive him. Repentance and faith in him as the gracious gift of God is the means of entering into the life of salvation.

    I affirm that the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and the New Testament are the final and supreme authority in all matters regarding the doctrines and the practices of the Christian Church. In the Scriptures God’s nature, will, and promises are revealed to us. I believe the Bible to be fully trustworthy as God’s written Word and revelation.
