Concentrating on Christ. The term is frequently contrasted with theocentric (centered on God, as distinct from the God-Man), and anthropocentric (centered on man). There is an absolute sense in which every action of a believer should be Christocentric, being done for Christ, like Christ, with Christ, and in Christ. (Etym. Latin Christus; from Greek Christos, "the anointed [one]," from chriein, to anoint + kentrikos, from kentron, center.)
