Christians' social life is based on values that are the moral foundations for an individual. Respecting these norms is what makes Christian communities different from other ones and what shapes their way of thinking and activities. These values are rooted in Jesus Christ as their main source and the personal centre of Christianity. This system of norms comes from the Bible, especially from the New Testament. The author focuses on a theological and moral characteristics of biblical axiology of Christian social life, especially on: 1) Love as the foundation of the social unity of the 'human world', 2) Freedom as a prescriptive value of human existence, 3) Truth as the unifying centre of human existence, 4) Peace and joy as characteristic aspects of Christian life.
