Abstract: The construct of God-centered self-esteem was recently introduced and is potentially important to the Christian individual. This study examined God-centered self-esteem as an outcome variable with respect to the valence and context of self-relevant experiences. Additionally, its relationship to attachment to God was also examined. A total of 149 Protestant Christian participants completed Survey 1 and 118 of them continued to complete Survey 2. Besides being affected by self-relevant experiences in the spiritual context, the results indicate that God-centered self-esteem is also affected by self-relevant experiences in the social context. In both contexts, participants’ God-centered self-esteem decreased significantly following the recall of negative self-relevant experiences and increased marginally following the recall of positive self-relevant experiences. A significant and positive relationship was observed between attachment to God and God-centered self-esteem. However, the extent to which negative self-relevant experiences affect God-centered self-esteem was not related to attachment to God. Ultimately, God-centered self-esteem continues to prove its importance to the Christian individual and its relevance to other spiritual and religious variables.
