What do Christians Believe?

what do Christians believe

Christians believe in one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. This foundational belief is known as the Trinity. Central to Christian faith is the belief that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, came to earth as a human, died on the cross for the sins of humanity, and was resurrected from the dead, offering salvation and eternal life to all who believe in Him and follow His teachings. The Holy Bible, comprising the Old and New Testaments, is the sacred scripture of Christians and serves as the authoritative source of their beliefs and practices.

Relevant Bible Verses:

  • John 3:16 (bold): “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
  • 2 Corinthians 13:14 (bold): “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
  • Romans 10:9 (bold): “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Salvation through Faith in Jesus Christ: Central to Christian doctrine is the belief in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not by human efforts or good deeds. Believers are called to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, believing in His death and resurrection as the atonement for their sins.
  2. The Authority of Scripture: Christians hold the Bible as the inspired word of God, authoritative and infallible in matters of faith and practice. It contains the teachings, commandments, and promises of God to humanity, guiding believers in their faith and daily lives.
  3. The Christian Life: Following Jesus Christ involves more than intellectual assent; it includes repentance, baptism, participating in the life of the church, and living out one’s faith through acts of love, service, and obedience to God’s commands. Christians are called to demonstrate the love of Christ to others, reflecting His character in their lives.
