In general Christians believe that the Bible represents the word of God and that Jesus Christ is the messiah according to Old Testament prophecy. Below are the main beliefs of Christianity.
- God – Christians believe that there is only one God. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” (Deuteronomy 6:4)
- Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) – Trinity consists of three persons. Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are considered to be an essence of the God. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
- Bible – The Bible is the final revelations of God. The bible consists of the Old Testament (books written prior to Jesus) and the New Testament (books related to the life of Jesus). ” This is the book of the generations of Adam . . .” (Genesis 5:1)
- Death and Resurrection of Jesus – Jesus was crucified on the cross. Christians believe that Jesus died for the sins of people. He was resurrected the following Sunday. The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.” (Luke 24:7)
- Return of Jesus – Bible also proclaims that the Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead. “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.” “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:30)
- Salvation and Punishment – Christians believe in the life after death. Those who believe in Jesus will be forgiven and saved, whereas, the unbelievers would face eternal punishment. “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matthew 24:36)
The beliefs of Christianity can also be seen in the words of the Apostles’ Creed.
The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ,
His only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell;
The third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy Christian Church,
The Communion of Saints,
the Forgiveness of sins,
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.

It is good to know facts, but that doesn’t mean you get it. On one hand, yes, Christians should be people who are capable of winning Trivial Pursuit. But on the other hand, they should also be too busy pursuing wisdom to play. Pity the pastor, with seminary training in ancient languages and a carefully constructed sermon, who must face a congregation taught by television to anticipate education with Muppets and Katy Perry.
