Family Research Council on May 26 launched the Center for Biblical Worldview (CBW). The Center for Biblical Worldview is an exciting new ministry of Family Research Council whose mission will to be to help Christians develop and live by a biblical worldview. CBW will also train Bible-believing Christians to advance and defend the faith in the workplace, in the schools, in their communities, and in the public square.
The CBW also welcomes two Senior Fellows, Dr. George Barna and Dr. Owen Strachan. George has pioneered survey research among evangelicals since 1981. His recent work shows that only a small percentage of self-identified Christians actually hold and live according to a biblical worldview. Barna’s surveys and research will play a key part in the CBW’s response to declining biblical literacy among Christians by sponsoring new initiatives to revive and cultivate a biblical worldview among believers.
Dr. Strachan currently serves as Provost and Research Professor of Theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary in Conway, Arkansas. He is a former president of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. Through resources like his latest book, Christianity and Wokeness (scheduled for publication this summer), Strachan will help CBW expose the woke secular ideologies that have increasingly infiltrated Christian universities, denominations, and other institutions and help provide resources for pastors, churches, and Christian families.
Along with the launch of the Center for Biblical Worldview, FRC has released a new, national survey regarding the state of worldview in America. The objective of the survey was to provide original, research-based insights about how many people possess a biblical worldview; if and to what extent they seek to integrate that worldview into every dimensions of their life; what influences have helped them to do so; and whether they believe that such integration matters to God.
“Christians have a duty to stand against the prevailing cultural tides and proclaim God’s truth to a dark and wandering world. But before you stand, you need solid ground,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said. “The Center for Biblical Worldview is designed to give Christians a firm foundation so that they can engage the culture by being rooted in God’s Word. Every Christian can and should obtain a biblical worldview – which is only achieved when a person believes that the Bible is true, authoritative, and then taught how it is applicable to every area of life, which enables them to live out those beliefs. We look forward with eagerness for how God will use our new Center for Biblical Worldview.”
According to the survey, 51 percent of adults claim to have a biblical worldview. However, extensive testing through the American Worldview Inventory indicates that just six percent of the adult population actually has a biblical worldview. Thus, it is not surprising that among the 51 percent who claim to have a biblical worldview, there are massive inconsistencies between what they believe and what the Bible teaches.
