Christian Worldview

The Christian worldview can be confusing at times. Many questions are brought up about a plethora of different topics pertaining to, God, Jesus, and salvation. Most of these questions cannot be answered completely, however, using the Bible they can be answered to a certain extent.

In the end God is still the loving father who sent his one and only son to die a horrid and painful death all to save us from eternal damnation so that in the end we can be reunited with him in the realms of
