Why are doctrine and theology important?
Doctrine and theology are important because without them, we cannot accurately understand who God is nor would we be able to accurately represent the gospel message to people by which they can be delivered from the punishment due to their sins. Doctrine is the right teaching as revealed in the word of God and theology is the study of God and what he has given us. Where theology teaches us the general principles of God in his revelation in the Bible, doctrine is a proper summation of what is taught within the holy pages of Scripture.
