What is Christianity? Christianity is pretty simple. It’s all about one life, the life of Jesus.
The core beliefs of Christianity are summarised in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.
- Jesus died for our sins,
- was buried,
- was resurrected,
- and thereby offers salvation to all who will receive Him in faith.
Christianity is more about a relationship than religious practices.
Instead of adhering to a list of “do’s and don’ts,” the goal of a Christian is to cultivate a close walk with God.
That relationship is made possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Beyond these core beliefs, Christians believe that:
- The Bible is the inspired, “God-breathed” Word of God and that its teaching is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
- There is one God who exists in three persons—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
- mankind was created specifically to have a relationship with God, but sin separates all men from God.
- Jesus Christ walked this earth, fully God, and yet fully man and died on the cross. That after His death, Christ was buried, He rose again, and now lives at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for the believers forever.
- Jesus’ death on the cross was sufficient to completely pay the sin debt owed by all men and this is what restores the broken relationship between God and man.
- There is nothing that anyone can do to earn salvation. We cannot be “good enough” to please God on our own, because we are all sinners and because Christ has done all the work!
More than that Christians believe that because of their faith that God, through Christ Jesus, blesses us with all the spiritual blessings we need to have a full and abundant life here on earth and later in heaven for eternity.
