For many of us, the Trinity is a truly puzzling aspect of the Christian faith. Why are we taught to believe in one God, who exists in three persons (the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit)? How can someone who is one also be three? How do the three persons of the Trinity relate to one another? Where in the Bible is this teaching found? How did the Church come to affirm this strange belief? Does this doctrine have any relevance to our practical life and ministry, or is it merely of historical interest for us today?
Come and explore these questions (and others) at this course. With God’s help, we hope to come away with a greater understanding of how critical and relevant our belief in the Trinity is.
Dr Leow Theng Huat has been attending Wesley Methodist Church ever since a friend invited him to church when he was in secondary school.

Theng Huat is currently serving as a lecturer of theology at Trinity Theological College. His passion is to convey the relevance and practicality of Christian theology for our life and ministry.

Organised by Youth Ministry (YM) in partnership with Family Life Ministry (FLM).
Youth Ministry (YM) will be holding its annual year-end camp again on 17 - 19 December 2020!
This year's camp theme is "STEADFAST" and it is based our camp theme verse Hebrews 6:17-20. In line with Wesley Methodist Church's theme of "Sabbath" in 2021, we hope that this year's camp will be a time for our youths to reflect on the year that is passing and to look forward to the year ahead, seeing God's plan and providence guiding us onwards.
This year in view of COVID-19, CAMP STEADFAST will not be an overnight camp but a day camp. The camp will also be decentralized in different homes to facilitate meeting and interaction in small groups.
