1 Marie Ament CWV-101 (M2) March 19, 2017 M. Koontz Gospel Essentials The Christian Worldview Christian worldview is all around us. Not only is it in America, but it’s all over the world. Christians are starting churches, youth groups, adult groups, and so much more to continue the word of god onto others. Throughout this paper, many different world views will be shared, and there will be much talk about the Christian faith. Every Christian has their own views on God, and His characteristics which contribute to humanity. Jesus will also be a common topic throughout this paper, and his actions to restore human beings.
