What Is Christianism?
A christian is someone who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christians believe that God is the one true God and that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead to offer salvation to anyone who accepts Him by faith (Romans 3:23; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4). They also believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word and is authoritative in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
The central focus of christianity is that Jesus was both fully human and completely divine: a technical term is “the incarnation.” This means that He was a real live person who spoke with a normal voice and performed miracles, but He was also the Almighty Creator of the universe.
Throughout history, many christians have been willing to sacrifice their lives for their beliefs. These early christians believed that those who die for their religion will go to heaven when they die and join with Christ in leading God’s kingdom on earth. This belief has been adjusted over the years to the conviction that believers who are baptized and receive the Holy Spirit will have the opportunity to be saved after they die and be taken directly to heaven, regardless of whether or not they are a Christian when they die.
In the past, there have been unique branches of christianity that have developed over time as different groups of christians have disagreed about specific aspects of Christianity. These groups have often been referred to as denominations. Despite these differences, christianity shares core beliefs with every branch of this religion that exists today.
