The Basic Beliefs of Christianity
Christianity is a religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. It has different branches that differ from each other, but they all share a belief in the Bible as a holy book and believe that Jesus is the son of God.
Christian beliefs include:
Deliverance (salvation) – The Bible teaches that salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus and His work on the cross. Christians should turn away from their sins and submit to Christ as Lord of their lives.
Casting out demons – The New Testament instructs Christians to cast out demonic spirits, known as “daimonizomai” in Greek, from their bodies and souls (see 2 Timothy 2:11).
Healing the sick – The Bible states that Christians should heal others, particularly those with physical problems or diseases. This practice is rooted in Christ’s compassion for those in need and in His love for humanity as a whole.
Miracles – The Bible records that Jesus performed many miracles in His early ministry. These signs and wonders helped people in the early Church understand that He was indeed God’s Son and sent by Him to save them from their sins.
In addition, they also helped build Christian faith and gave the early Church credibility as a credible and powerful message of God’s love for humanity.
The early church spread Christianity across the Roman Empire, Europe and Africa. One of the most important missionaries was Paul, who converted to Christianity after a supernatural encounter with Jesus. He traveled widely and established churches throughout the empire.
