The Christian worldview is centered on the Gospel and places their beliefs in the essential teachings of the Trinity, the deity of Jesus Christ, and Jesus’ resurrection from the dead (DiVincenzo, 2015). This paper will explain who God is and what he created, what our purpose and nature is as humans, who Jesus was and what he did while on earth, how God plans to bring his people back into the right relationship with himself, and as a Christian how one is to live their life with an analysis of the Christian worldview. God God is like a father and we, humanity are his children. He teaches us, prepares us, disciplines us, and punishes us for not obeying and following His commands. The attributes of God that belong distinctly to him are that
The body of Christ; His church that gathers together, prays together, heals and seeks the lost. In the most practical way, as a church that is made up of people of different personalities and God given spiritual gifts, form the body of Christ to which He would certainly want His body on a mission. The mission is simply this; reach the lost, heal the sick, and make disciples to continue His work here on earth until the end comes. The work of God in this world is His people; Christians using the gifts God give them to further His kingdom and save as many as we can. The bible starts with the separation of God and humanity’s relationally, and moves on to the introduction to Jesus as the one who seeks to restore this right relationship with God
The preaching of repentance was particularly important for the disciples as they were to spread the good news which was that if one does truly repent, then they will be welcomed into the Kingdom of God. 16:16- "Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned". Today, the tasks of the apostles have similar meanings. To cast out devils is to fight injustice and do the will of God and to anoint the sick is basically to care for them. Modern disciples will still try to preach the gospel and spread the word of God.
the gap that existed between man and God because of sin, has been bridged. His precious blood that was shed on the cross wiped away all our sins. Furthermore, the death of Christ means humanity received grace; “grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” According to John the Baptist in John 1:18, know one has set eyes on the Father, but through Jesus Christ, who is in close relation with God the Father, has made Him known. The teachings and doctrines of Jesus Christ whiles he on earth forms the foundation of the Christian worldview. Jesus taught his disciples about love.
The book of Proverbs tells us that we need to cling on to Him which to me that means we should follow His teachings and do whatever it takes to be with God so we can share in God's life in heaven. When something bad happens to us and we don't know how to handle it we can always pray to God for help, instead of doing what may seem right to us may be wrong to God, that is why we should pray to Him for help. If we trust in God then he will help us to make the best of the situation. As long as we believe in God then he will forgive us. I know that if we confess our sins often so that we don't forget some of them later that he will forgive us as long as we are truly sorry for them, we do our penance and we ask him for forgiveness then he will forgive us.
The Mission of the Church is Mission However we look at the purpose of the Church in the world today we cannot avoid the fundamental truths that God created us to firstly have communion with Him; then to fellowship with others who have also come to believe in the saving work of Christ; and also to witness to the lost who live in our midst. These three things I believe are inseparable and I want to focus on the last point after making some brief comments about the first two. God did not leave us in doubt about His love for mankind when we read throughout the Old and New Testaments about His provision of a way back to Him, even though it was Man who rebelled against God and so deserves His wrath. Many times we see how God made covenants (agreements with a promise) with men of old such as Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Moses, David, and countless numbers of prophets. Mostly the promises of God are that He is selecting a people for Himself, the children of Israel, and these special people are chosen to be a light to the rest of the world, witnessing God’s goodness and mercy to them.
Interestingly enough, symbolism is what captivated me in this book. More specifically, the "I am" statements of Jesus Christ made this Gospel speak to me more than any other of the Gospels. Without a doubt, these statements that Jesus made were for the believers and the church. The "I am" statements are all meant to tell us something different, with the purpose of helping all people to believe in Jesus Christ, so that everyone may have everlasting life with our Father in Heaven. Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life.
Jesus Christ- The Hope Of All Nations Jesus Christ was the light that came to earth to brighten the lives of the people. He taught phenomenal and meaningful lessons that changed many hearts and caused people to accept Jesus as their Lord. Jesus Christ is the life of Christianity; the Word of God in flesh. His life, his ministry, and his crucifixion where prophesied long before he was born and Christians believe that they were all fulfilled. He had so much love for human kind that he came to earth to die for the sins of the people, so that their souls would be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
In the bible, Jesus and his resurrection into heaven is seen as a pivotal part of his life and the lives of all humankind. By being risen up by the Lord, Jesus is validating what only a select few believed. He was truly the Son of God and the Son of Man. God, the all powerful, was able to raise Christ from the dead and once again, have him at his right hand side. Jesus had to be resurrected in order to fulfill the prophecies made about the Messiah and prove to the disbelievers that he was who he claimed to be.
Straight away in Mark’s Gospel, in the first section it talks about spreading the Good news. This is required from every disciple, where ever you go you should preach the word and not be ashamed of your God. For it is written (9:38) ‘If a person is ashamed of me and my teaching in this godless and wicked day, then the Son of Man will be ashamed of him…’. Faith is absolutely essential for discipleship. Christians believe and trust in God completely, otherwise why would they follow him.
