A Christian Worldview: Your View of the World Matters

This week as we start our new study, we will see why it is important to think as Christians. Our minds must be transformed and renewed by the power of the gospel. A Christian worldview matters because it sets us apart from unbelievers, helps us progress spiritually, and gives us wisdom to make decisions as believers in Christ. Worldviews matter because people matter. If we are to fulfill our role as Christ’s ambassadors, we must be equipped to meet people where they are and to communicate the gospel in a way they can understand

The Glory of God: Man-Centered vs. God-Centered Living

This week we will contrast a man-centered view of the world with a God-centered view of the world by taking a close look at the glory of God. We will see that the glory of God refers to God’s manifest work, His excellent reputation, and His inherent beauty.  en we will look at how the glory of God impacts our lives today and fuels our mission as Christ’s ambassadors.
