Jesus. Christians recognise Jesus as the Son of God who was sent to save mankind from death and sin. Jesus Christ taught that he was Son of God. His teachings can be summarised, briefly as the love of God and love of one’s neighbour.
How does Christianity start?
Christian history begins with the life and death of Jesus Christ and continues with the formation of the early Christian church, Emperor Constantine’s Holy Roman Empire and the great schism into Eastern and Western Christianity.
What are the three basic teachings of Christianity?
Its main points include:
Belief in God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit.
The death, descent into hell, resurrection and ascension of Christ.
The holiness of the Church and the communion of saints.
Christ’s second coming, the Day of Judgement and salvation of the faithful.
How many people are in Christianity?
“As of 2010, Christianity was by far the world’s largest religion, with an estimated 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth,” the Pew report says. “Islam was second, with 1.6 billion adherents, or 23 percent of the global population.”
What are the Trinity?
The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. ‘triad’, from Greek τριάς and τριάδα, from Latin: trinus “threefold”) holds that God is one but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as “one God in three Divine Persons”.
