What’s Christianity all about?

Christianity is the world’s biggest religion, with about 2.2 billion followers worldwide. It’s based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ who lived in the Holy Land in the Middle East 2,000 years ago. Through its incredible missionary activity, Christianity has spread to just about every corner of the globe.

Christians are people who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and who follow his teachings and those of the Christian churches that grew after his death. They believe that Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to his disciples to show everyone that there is another life with one eternal loving God, and life in all its fullness available to us all today.

Christians believe in one true God who lives eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They see the Bible as the inspired Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and instructing us how we should live our lives. Christians believe that they have a personal relationship with Jesus and that this relationship is the centre point for their lives.

Evangelical Christians gather around the statement of faith from the Evangelical Alliance. This shares the basic beliefs of their faith.
