20 CREATIVE CHRISTIAN BULLET JOURNAL THEME IDEAS
Since there are so many themes to choose from in the Bible, I have compiled an exclusive list with only 20 handpicked christian bullet journal theme ideas for you. I’ve also created a graphic (a Pinterest pin) to go with each theme incase you want to save a specific bullet journal theme for later. So, I hope you enjoy all 20 christian bullet journal theme ideas and their respective graphic! 🙂
It only makes sense that the first christian bullet journal theme idea I list is the first story in the Bible: creation. Creation is one of the most important biblical themes because it perfectly describes how God created the entire world in 6 days.
CREATION IN THE BIBLE:
The entire story of Creation can be found in Genesis (1)1-31 and Genesis (2)1-25
- Plants and dry ground
- The sun, moon, and stars
- Birds and sea animals
- Humans and land animals
- God rests from all his work.
- Light vs darkness illustrated
- Dry land
- Humans: man and woman
2. SALVATION IN CHRIST
Colossians 1:16 says, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.” (NKJV)
Everything created and written in the Bible (both Old & New Testament scripture) points back to Jesus Christ. Everything was created through Christ and for Christ.
So, the next theme idea that you can try is: Salvation in Christ.
SALVATION BIBLE VERSES:
- John 14:6 – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (NKJV)
- John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (NKJV)
- 1 Thessalonians 5:9 – For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. (NKJV)
- Acts 4:12 – Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (NKJV)
- Hebrews 7:25 – Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. (NKJV)
- 2 Timothy 1:9 – who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. (NKJV)
3. WOMEN IN THE BIBLE
If you’re a woman like myself, this theme may be of interest to you! I’ve always found it very interesting to study the women in the Bible to learn from them. So, why not create a bullet journal theme based on some of your favorite female biblical characters?
LIST OF WOMEN IN THE BIBLE:
Even though there are so many remarkable women found in the Bible, I’m only going to list a couple to not make this any post longer than it should be! 😉

4. ARK OF NOAH
The next theme I want to bring up is Noah’s ark. Although this may be one of the most popular stories in the Bible and you’ve probably drawn tons of ark’s in Sunday school over the years, we can never get enough of this beautiful story of redemption.

- Surviving the flood inside of the ark – Genesis 7
- Leaving the ark – Genesis 8

5. THE LIFE OF JESUS
Because everything was created for Him and through Him, it’s impossible to look past the greatest character in the entire Bible, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. In this theme, the goal is to focus on Jesus’ life on earth from his birth to his resurrection.
JESUS TIMELINE ON EARTH
Since you can find the entire story of Jesus in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, I’m not going to include specific verses.

Galatians 5:22-23 mentions 9 godly attributes that are considered the fruit of the Holy Spirit. So for this theme, I want you to focus on studying, illustrating, and trying to adapt the 9 attributes of the Spirit in your life.
9 ATTRIBUTES OF THE SPIRIT
- Fruit basket
- Things that represent love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

8. THE LIFE OF MOSES
If there is a story I can never ever get tired of reading, watching, or illustrating, it’s the story of Moses. As one of the most important biblical characters in the entire Bible and the author of the Pentateuch (The books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy), it’s impossible not to dedicate a spot in this list to the great Moses.
IMPORTANT EVENTS IN MOSES’ LIFE
Since Moses’s story is very lengthy, I am just going to include the books where you can follow the events in his life. You can read about Moses in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Here are some important events in Moses’ life:
