Character education is important to do to create a society that has character and has a good moral life. This is the responsibility of Christian education because they are trusted to educate students to be like Christ. Thomas Lickona stated that to form good character requires moral knowledge, moral feelings, and moral action. Christianity sees students as human beings who have fallen into sin. Character education becomes something that must be done to educate sinful humans to know what is God's will in their lives. The purpose of this research is to analyze the development of teaching materials that can be used in the implementation of character education at the Kalam Kudus Christian Middle School Surakarta. The method used in this paper is based on previous research and qualitative methods. The results of this study indicate that character education will have a greater impact when someone believes in Christ. The Holy Spirit will work a new birth in his life and enable him to have a life that is by God's will. Because of that, it is necessary to compile a Christian Character teaching material that will support the implementation of Christian character education. This teaching material is expected to be able to help students to understand what their life purpose and calling can manifest in their daily lives.
