A biblical worldview is the lens we use to trust the word of God and how we apply it to everyday life. Our worldview is something we deem true and valuable. Hence, by applying God 's all-knowing truth and wisdom, we allow it to be the groundwork of everything we think, say, and do. Biblical Worldview According to Graham, the Bible sets the tone for a Christian worldview and unseals the eyes of sinful people so that they can recognize God and reality from a truthful outlook (Graham, 2009, p. 12). The components of a biblical worldview are shown through the Bible, as Genesis 1:1 states, "God is the creator of the world and rules this universe!"
Finally, “all agree that the Bible promises success in this process of struggling against personal sin, through the power of the Holy Spirit” (pp.7-8).

His understanding of the sanctification was based on the Reformation and
The disciple moves along this continuum from the birth of curiosity about Christ toward being a mature and complete follower of Christ. The apostle Paul describes the end goal of this growth process as “the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13). Francis Foulkes in his book Ephesians: An Introduction and Commentary provides further explanation of this goal: “Whether the goal can be realized in this life or not is irrelevant. The point is that the Christian is to press forward with no lesser ambition than this. This is human life as it is intended to be, measured only by all that we can understand of the human life of Christ
The Bible is God’s word, and it should be treated as such. It is the divine Word from the one who has created the universe and each person in it. This truth should drive people to desire to hear from their creator. In this book Kevin DeYoung acknowledges that the majority of those reading this book are Christians, and his goal for each reader is to see the beauty of scripture and understand how this should impact their lives. In order
Spiritual growth is one of the biblical foundations needed for human growth and development in Man’s life. Spiritual growth is the process of becoming more like Jesus Christ. When faith is placed in Jesus, the Holy Spirit begins the process of making us more like Him, transforming us to His image. Spiritual growth is maybe best described in 2 Peter 1:3-8 , Peter tells us that by God's power we have “everything we need” to live lives of godliness, which is the goal of spiritual growth. What is needed comes “through the knowledge of Him,” which is the key to obtaining everything that is needed in our lives.
The beauty and comprehensiveness of Kirk’s “mission is the Christian life” definition is to be admired. It appears to adequately describe the transformed life and task of a true disciple of Christ. 2.2.4 Radical Discipleship Mission The fourth stream is called radical discipleship mission.

This position also refuses to differentiate any priority between evangelism and social responsibility.
Introduction: “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus saud to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And te second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law.” (Matthew 22:36-40) The want to follow Gods commandments is within a sense of Holiness.

The record of this revelation is given by God to man for His edification, guidance, and blessings. The Bible contains great wisdom and truth, and it has been verified throughout history as being flawlessly accurate. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. ( John 17:17) Inspiration 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

In Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells us to, “Go and make disciples of all nations”. God wants us to share our Christian faith with copious amounts of people all over the world through our words, actions, and prayers. After you talk to someone about their faith you can pray that what you shared will convince them to come to Jesus. You can pray that God will guide the missionary groups who are fulfilling their duties to God in other parts of the world. Whatever you are doing, do it consistent with what God wants, as you never know how you are going to influence somebody.
