The Christian worldview may differ in different denominations of Christianity but only exist because of their belief of God and Jesus. Conclusion As we have looked in to the Christian worldview of God, our humanity, the Son of God, and the restoration of our lives back into God’s purpose. Now we have a better understanding of what it means to be a member of the Christian community. God wants believers to dwell in union and in community having the same mind that is in Jesus Christ (Phil 2:1-11). This paper showed how God and Jesus Christ are at the fundamental core of all Christian beliefs regardless of the countless differences many Christians may
Furthermore, Paul provides even more evidence to the church in Colossae. He indicates that as believers of Jesus Christ, a person must now walk in the ways of newness. A newness contributing much needed righteous fruit, before humanity. The oldness of man is sin, but the newness is the life in Jesus Christ. The Bible records, “If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land”( 2
Proper education and spiritual development will lead to true worship. Paul’s example provides a sufficient picture of the mindset of a true disciple when he wrote to the Philippians, “For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ,…” (Philippians 1:19-21, NKJV). (This should be in a block quote. (four or more lines.))

Evangelism is a basic tenet of Christianity. Evangelism is defined by Webster’s as “a preaching of, or zealous effort to spread, the gospel, as in revival or by televised services”. More accurately, it is “sounding out” God’s word (1 Thess. 1:8). With these definitions in mind, we can see what we are discussing: sharing the faith in Jesus Christ with others.
With Langston refusing to get up to be saved, he created a conflict between him and everyone in the church. He felt that if he got up, it would be degrading to his character. Not everyone can believe that what you tell them is automatically true, no matter how many stories you tell them; they have to find that out for themselves.

Being in this world but not of this world is the emphasis of scripture, and it is through the experience of sanctification that Christians are set apart from this world (Gause, 2009). It is through the Holy Spirit Christians are set apart from this world and that God’s good works are seen through the body of the church.

Calling Understanding God’s calling is not something that is easy and it is a very personal thing, my calling to youth ministry is no different. There is a saying that says, “Keep your friends close and you enemies closer.” This is the approach that I took with God for much of my life. God was more of an enemy to me, he was like the ultimate fun sucker. I did not ignore God, in fact I learned a lot about God. I thought that if I could just know a lot about God that somehow that would be enough to get off of his naughty list, and frequently I thought I could just push Jesus off until later in my life.
