What is SBCW?
The School of Biblical Christian Worldview (HMT/SCI 213) is a 12-week course at the University of the Nations that aims to bring a vision of the Kingdom of God through the influence and impact that Christ brings to the society. Not only about individual salvation, but a profound and transformative impact in all areas (Family, Church, Education, Arts, Sports, Communication, Health, Business, and Government). The Good News of Jesus Christ is much more than personal salvation and is relevant in all areas of society.
This course takes a historical look at the prevailing philosophies and ideologies that lie beneath the social and political issues of present day societies. It encourages students to become responsible Christians in society, and to exercise positive influence wherever they work and serve. Students delve into topics such as the meaning and components of a worldview, and learn how to apply biblical Christian thinking to contemporary issues. Each student is required to write a paper under the guidance of an advisor.
This course meets the UofN Core Curriculum requirement for Applied Christian Thinking.
Pre requisite: DSP 211 & 212

Purpose of the School
School of Biblical Christian Worldview (HMT/SCI 213 | 12 credits)
Do you know what you believe in and why you believe? Are you able to explain your beliefs to others?
The School of Biblical Christian Worldview will lead you to the answers to the great questions of the world from a biblical Christian worldview. The world is in a process of cultural and globalized developments where we must clearly understand the vision of thinking behind the current social and political changes.
Our goal is that you learn to think biblically because biblical thinking will allow us to produce changes in different areas of society. All of these areas are deeply influenced by a humanistic, scientific and philosophical thinking, which must be reinterpreted in the light of the biblical Christian worldview so that concrete actions can be taken to transform these areas of influence.
You will learn to see the world through the eyes of God and, from there, understand what He wants to do through you where you live and meet the challenges of the 21st century by applying a Bible-centered Christian Worldview.
