What is Christianity according to the Bible?
“What is Christianity?” There is no one answer to this question, as Christianity can be defined in many ways. Generally, though, it can be said that Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Christians believe in God (as opposed to other religions that focus more on mythology or mysticism), and follow his commandments and instructions as outlined in the Bible.
Many believe that merely attending church once a month or believing in God makes them Christian. The Bible offers a distinct image of what Christianity is according to the bible.
A person who follows God’s (YHWH) will and lives as Jesus Christ teaches called a Christian.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”Corinthians 5:17
The life of Jesus, the Son of God, is the focal point of it all. Jesus was God Himself who came to dwell among us as a human, according to the Bible.
What are Christianity’s Beliefs?
Christians believe in a single God who created the heavens and the earth and is monotheistic. The father (God himself), the son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit make up this divine Godhead.
Jesus of Nazareth (Jesus Christ, or the Anointed One of God) lived, taught, and died in the 1st century CE. Christianity is a major religion that sprang from his life, teachings, and death. It is now the world’s biggest religion and is widely practised across all of Earth’s continents.
How do you become a Christian?
Everyone, regardless of their background or race, is free to have a relationship with Jesus. This is a biblical truth. Anyone who has faith in Jesus Christ can receive forgiveness for their sins and have eternal life.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”John 3:16
Taking the first step
1. First, you must accept that Jesus is the son of God and sacrificed his life for your eternal salvation. Invite Jesus into your heart and life as your Lord and Savior. He will do the rest.
2. Then, you need to read the Bible and pray about what it says.
3. Next, you need to attend a Christian church or fellowship regularly.
4. Live your life according to God’s Word
When you become a Christian, you are no longer alone in your faith. You have a new family and community of believers who will help guide and support you as you walk through life. As their light within the darkness, be a source of encouragement to lead others toward Jesus – the one authentic way to find happiness and fulfilment.
