Christian Theology Concentration

Online Theology Courses Applied Toward an Online Theology Degree

Spirit-led Christian theology distance education

The aim of the theology courses in our online theology degree program is to provide you with a theological education that will not only help you understand the Bible but will also transform your life. If you are a Christian minister or worker and you desire a systematic study of Scripture, this is an ideal program for you. The primary objectives are:

  • To present the Word of God in such a manner that you can understand it with clarity and depth.
  • To help you develop a deeper relationship with God.
  • To assist you in gaining wisdom on how to apply the Bible to your everyday life.
  • To equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to communicate God’s Word.
  • To help you mature in your walk with God, discover your ministry and calling and prepare you for Christian service and leadership.


Graduate and undergraduate distance learning thelogy degrees

The online theology courses offered by CLU may be applied as a major concentration toward any of the following Christian online theology degrees:

Additional work is required when an undergraduate-level course is taken on the graduate level. Course substitutions and combining major concentrations are possible when working toward your online theology degree. Discuss these options with the Dean. The key is to follow God’s passion within your heart. Students in the Master’s programs earn approximately 30 credits for each degree from specific courses, and the remaining 10 credits by doing practical ministry work and earning “practica” credits.


Students in the Doctor of Divinity and Doctor of Theology programs are required to complete 60 credits beyond the Master's degree, including a mandatory doctoral dissertation. These credits may come from a combination of: 1) courses taken; 2) an original thesis or ministry project; and 3) a practicum or internship experience. (More details here.) The student is expected to work together with the Dean in designing a program that will meet his desire for growth in the area(s) in which God has placed a passion in his heart.

THE121 Law and the Spirit (Course Syllabus)

THE208 Church Triumphant (Course Syllabus)

MIN211 Building Dynamic Teams (Course Syllabus)

1 credit


"...they ordained them elders in every church…" (Acts 14:23). Biblical precedent indicates that local churches were governed by a team of elders. God never let the rulership of the body rest on the shoulders of one man, knowing that each of us has weaknesses and limitations, and that no one man can completely represent full truth, wisdom and power as Jesus did. This course will help local church leadership function more effectively as a team, honoring the gifts of all. Prerequisites: LEA103 Gifted to Succeed (required); MIN210 Five Fold Ministry Gifts (recommended). This course will be most useful if you are currently part of a leadership team.

These prayers include breaking generational sins and curses; severing ungodly soul ties; removing negative beliefs and inner vows; healing traumatic scenes; and casting out demonic energy that has connected itself to these inner wounds of the heart and soul. The entire healing process is sealed by doing an intensive meditation on biblical passages that bear on the issues being healed so God can grant you illumined insights from His Word.


REN310 Wisdom Through Dream Interpretation (Course Syllabus)

3 credits


REN510 Wisdom Through Dream Interpretation (Graduate) 4 credits  $393.87

Psalms declares that God counsels us at night through our dreams (Ps. 16:7).

Prerequisite: REN103 Communion With God.


MIN310 Experiencing God in the Small Group (Course Syllabus)

“I have been blessed by this journey with CLU and my life is forever changing. I do not have the words to share with you right now, Mr. Virkler, but I will say that you have changed my life. Your obedience to God has affected my family, friends and community.

“The Doctorate at CLU was the most important education I have ever had and will ever get. I received my B.A in education and my M.A. in counseling from The University of Phoenix. My Doctorate with CLU is the most precious part of my educational journey. Glory be to God! My Doctorate from Walden University will allow me to be a certified instructor in the State of Arizona but nothing can ever take the place of my Doctorate from CLU. I will buy your books for my clients.”
