Theology is derived from the two Greek words (Theos) meaning “God” and (logos) meaning “word.”  Formally, theology means “the study or science of God.”  Informally, theology is the means by which God gives us understanding to the things concerning Himself and our relationship to Him.  In a broader sense, theology is Christ living out His life in our lives through His Spirit that we may know God as He knows God, and be One with the Father, as He and the Father are One.  Theology properly understood is not just mental knowledge of the Bible.  God is a living God, and His word is living.  We know His word through a relationship with Him and a daily hunger and feeding on His word.
