Marsha's Ministry

Welcome to Doug's Theology Corner!

In this corner, I display many of my theological essays and works that I have done for my undergraduate classes at Southeastern University and North Central University and for my graduate classes at Southwestern A/G University.  These papers have been a blessing to me as I have dedicated countless hours in prayerful thought and research.  Also, I have included essays that I wrote as I worked toward a goal of attaining "Christian Worker Status" (1986-1989) in Maranatha Ministries.

My Spiritual Background

Lutheran Church (ELCA) 1966 - 1984 Received Christ on 6/3/80
Non-Denominational Charismatic Church 1984 - 1993 Baptized in water and (later) in the Holy Spirit
