The Fundamental Beliefs of Christianity
Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and through their faith in him they can inherit eternal life. They also believe in the Trinity, or the three parts of God: God the Father (Creator), God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.
Christians are a diverse group of people worldwide who worship one God, His son Jesus Christ and use the Bible as their guidebook. Various branches of Christianity have developed over the past two thousand years, but all share their beliefs in one God and Jesus as their Savior and Messiah.
Among other things, Christians believe that Christ was both fully human and fully divine; that he was born of a virgin; that he died for the sins of all men; that he rose from the dead; and that he will come again at the end of time.
Healing the Sick
Many Christians believe that God heals people who are sick. This is based on several biblical passages, including Matthew 19:29-30; Luke 17:12-13; Acts 3:30; and Romans 5:8-9.
The Bible says that Jesus was able to heal the blind, the lame, the lepers and many other people who were ill. In addition, he commanded his disciples to cast out demons from people who were under the power of such spirits.
Christian healings are a way for the body of believers to show that they are truly followers of Jesus, and they are also a sign that God is with them in their suffering. Whether the healing takes place in person or through the prayers of the church community, the results are often powerful.
