The objective of this study was to explore the mediators of environmental protective behaviors in Christians in Taiwan. Questionnaire data from a total of 699 participants were collected and subjected to a confirmatory factor analysis. The results revealed that the environmental behaviors of Taiwanese Christians are affected by their faith in three aspects. First, private environmental behaviors are associated with church attendance. Second, the awareness of environmental consequences generates a stewardship belief, which results in a willingness to sacrifice for the environment, private environmental behaviors, and political environmental activism. Finally, stewardship belief is also associated with political environmental activism.
