Covenant Life Institute

Covenant Life Institute (CLI) is a time devoted each week for our church to grow individually and with one another into sound biblical theologians and missionaries. CLI supplements the preached word and community group discussions by helping us grow in our understanding of God and the various doctrines surrounding Him.

During three 12-week semesters throughout the year, we provide opportunities for all members and attendees to study in CLI with a variety of topics covered. In order to ensure each member has ample opportunity to study with others and serve in childcare for others to attend classes, we divide each semester into two sessions. Sessions 1 and 2 cover the same material.

Classes for session 2 began June 3 and will run through July 8. See below for the current class options.

Old Testament Overview III This survey class is the third in a series walking through the books of the Old Testament. Old Testament Overview III will cover Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, 1 & 2 Kings, Isaiah, Hosea, Joel, Amos, and Obadiah, and through this course we will seek to understand how these books paint a broad picture of the continuing story of redemption culminating in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Systematic Theology II Systematic Theology II covers the major doctrines found in the Bible which have been taught in the church through the ages. We believe that knowing God includes studying the the doctrines pointing us to Him with one another. Systematic Theology II will cover the following topics: sin, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ.

Unity and Diversity in the Church Covenant Life desires to be a thriving, diverse community of Christians who regularly pursue unity in the local church with one another for the glory of God in Tampa and all nations. Through this course, we’ll seek to understand why and how God cares about unity and diversity in the local church.
