We believe in the story of God and Jesus Christ. A worldview is the “set of assumptions or beliefs about reality that affect how we think and how we live” (Lecture 1, 2017). Worldviews are like the foundationof a building. They create the start of a belief. Worldview is seen through a person eyes through their lenses (Waddell, 2015).
