Colson Center Fact Sheet
"If Christians fail to develop a biblical worldview, the future Christian Church will likely have an even lesser connection to biblical principles than is evident today."
-Colson Center Founder Chuck Colson
A person's worldview serves as a decision-making filter and has a significant influence on his or her choices. Yet amazingly, less than one-fifth of all Christians have a biblical worldview (Barna Group, 2009). To help Christians develop an informed worldview that sees, understands and engages the world from a biblical perspective, leading Christian thinker and writer Chuck Colson founded the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Wordlview, a nonprofit that educates Christians on how to apply their faith to all areas of life.
In addition to shaping an individual's biblical viewpoint, the Colson Center collaborates with other Christian ministries to launch ecumenical grassroots movements around moral and ethical issues of great concern. Both are accomplished through a variety of Colson Center initiatives including:
BreakPoint radio commentaries, which offer listeners a brief biblical perspective on today's news and trends. They are carried by some 1,400 radio outlets with a combined audience of 8 million listeners nationwide.
