The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2015 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Anthony W. Foster This project examines the need for the theological training of adults in Southern Baptist churches using the 2000 version of The Baptist Faith and Message. Chapter 1 explains the goals, ministry context, rationale, definitions, limitations and delimitations, and methodology of the project, thereby revealing the need for a series on Southern Baptist doctrine at Highland Baptist Church. Chapter 2 provides a scriptural and theological justification for believers to know and understand doctrine. Chapter 3 provides the practical implications for Christians to know and understand doctrine. Chapter 4 examines the project implementation where adults are led through a thirteen-week series on The Baptist Faith and Message. The project concludes in chapter 5 with an examination of conclusions, evidence of findings, and an evaluation of the overall project. Appendices provide charts, curriculum, pre/post-series surveys and the 2000 version of The Baptist Faith and Message.
