This study is an attempt to provide a ministry model for promoting a Christian lifestyle at Harvest Hills Church in Burlington, North Carolina, USA. In a literature review an attempt is made to analyse and evaluate the theological basis of Christian ethics, as the foundation of a Christian lifestyle. A biblical survey is then conducted to discover the biblical foundations for a Christian lifestyle. Special attention is given to a biblical exegesis of I Timothy 4:16, as a key verse relating to a Christian lifestyle.
