Christian science

Should being a Christian change how I do science?
I doubt it should or will effect the nature of the scientific knowledge I produce. I don't think there is a Christian version of condensed matter physics or quantum theory.
However, I believe being a Christian should have a significant effect on how I practise science.
Some possibilities:
-act with integrity
-put others before self
-think and act with humility and objectivity
-have a sense of wonder at God's great creation and that we can understand it
-be concerned with finding the truth, not with confirming my own theories
On the other hand, Christians do not necessarily have a monopoly on most of these.
