The name, Kingdomview, is a combination of the two terms ‘kingdom’ and ‘worldview’. A genuine Christian worldview is focused on the spread of the Kingdom of God. The ultimate goal of God’s Kingdom is that His throne room and this earth will both be in perfectly harmony. This will fulfill Jesus’ prayer to His Father, “Your kingdom come, you will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
A ‘kingdomview’ is a sweeping vision of all of life under the sovereign authority of the covenant God of Israel revealed in Jesus Christ. (For more on this point, click here)
