The Worldviews of Christians The Christian worldview is one that many people around the world hold close to their hearts. This worldview is a view of love and hope and of redemption, and follows the teachings found in the Holy Bible as they are the Word of God. However, it has become apparent that some denominations don’t quite believe in the same foundations of the Christian worldview as others do.

I love being a Christian and tit brings so much joy and happiness into my life. One day, I will be able to thank God for sending His son to this earth so that I could have the opportunities I have
