What Is Christianity?
Christianity is a belief system that focuses on Jesus Christ as its central figure. It is a religion that stresses God’s omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence (Genesis 1:26; Exodus 15:11; Isaiah 43:10). Christians believe that Jesus was a divine being sent by God to free people from sin, death, and the power of Satan.
Casting out demons, healing the sick, miracle healing
Many Christians believe that demons are evil spirits that live in the human body and cause physical illness. They believe that Jesus Christ cast out demons and that he still does today.
Christians also believe that healing can only be accomplished through prayer and faith. A person who is suffering from a sickness will ask the elders in their church for healing, and they will then anoint the sick with oil and offer a prayer of faith that God will raise them up.
Christian believers will also love their fellow Christian members, admonish them when they fall into sin, share their burdens, encourage them to follow Jesus, pray for their restoration and spiritual help, and give them gifts in the name of Christ.
The earliest followers of Jesus believed that he was the Messiah, or the messenger sent by God to save people from slavery and sin. They also believed that he died on the cross for their sins and was resurrected three days later. These beliefs, along with the many other Christian teachings, are recorded in the Bible.
