Christian Worldview – Overview
As Christians, we see the world through different eyes. We live in a pluralistic society that wants to normalise different belief systems and treat them all as equally valid. Biblical Christianity resists the push to make Christianity “just another” belief. The Bible teaches us that we are called to make a difference in the world around us.
Christian Worldview explores what we believe and practice. It explores how Christianity is unique and will inevitably challenge the prevailing cultural norms and practices and bring good into a fallen world.
Who is God, and how can we understand the Trinity? Who created us and continues to partner with us? How do our lives have a part in God’s eternal plan? How can we address pressing issues about now and the future?
These are some of the questions that we will tackle. Why not join us as we explore what makes Christianity different in belief and action?
