What is Christianity? 

CEM-What-does-it-mean-for-usUnique among all other faiths, Christianity is more about a relationship than religious practices.

Jesus died for the things we do wrong, (our sins), was buried, was resurrected, and thereby offers salvation to all who will receive Him in faith.  So, instead of trying to stick to a list of “do’s and don’ts,” the goal of a Christian is to cultivate a close walk with God both individually and together with other Christians.

That relationship is made possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Other religions require that a person does or doesn't do certain things; but Christianity is about believing that Christ died on the cross as payment for our sins and He rose again to establish a new way of life in relationship with God. Our sin debt is paid and we can know God. We can have victory over our sin and death, experience true forgiveness and the power of the Holy Spirit which brings life.

Beyond these core beliefs, there are other things that are part of what Christianity is and what Christianity believes. Christians believe that the Bible is the inspired, “God-breathed” Word of God and that its teaching is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Christians believe in one God that exists in three persons—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.
