Christianity

Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic with over 2.4 billion followers, or 33% of the global population, known as Christians.

Christian theology is summarized in creeds such as the Apostles' Creed and Nicene Creed. These professions of faith state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, descended into hell, and rose from the dead, in order to grant eternal life to those who believe in him and trust in him for the remission of their sins. The creeds further maintain that Jesus physically ascended into heaven, where he reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, and that he will return to judge the living and the dead and grant eternal life to his followers. His incarnation, earthly ministry, crucifixion and resurrection are often referred to as "the gospel", meaning "good news". The term gospel also refers to written accounts of Jesus' life and teaching, four of which—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are considered canonical and included in the Christian Bible.

All that's left is to find out for yourself the truth.

Something to think about

This is a quote from Katie Davis, a Christian who is now living in Uganda and caring for many children... Also see: blog.drwile.com Thought some people can't adopt, you can sponsor children through various programs, writing letters to them etc... for example Compassion International, WorldVision...

Everyday!

Should be our mission everyday.

This is a powerful skit about the journey for many teenagers living in the world today, facing distractions that pull us away from God, and how Jesus still loves us enough to save us from the sin. Take six minutes of your time to be blessed today! It's easy to relate to, which is why it's such a powerful message, especially for this generation!

I believe with all my heart that everyone should know something. This is something that is definitely worth while. It has changed my life and I know it will change yours. You may think I am a perfect little church girl, but I am not. I am a broken church girl. My father abused us, everyone I trusted broke me over and over. This is not my point though. There's one constant in all of this, Christ. He was there for me and He can be there for you!

When I think back and look in the New Testament, I don't remember Jesus saying that Christianity needs division for salvation. Its simply God's Word, not Baptist, not Southern Baptist, not even non-denom, it's just Bible. All that God had ever done and said, all within that book, and yet so many people conform it to what they want. Its not right. This is a Spoken Word by David Bowden called Diversity's Symphony, and gives reasoning where reasoning isn't often found anymore.

Rough breakdown of Christian denominational progression.

Christianity represents one of the most widely observed faiths in the world today. Over the 2000 years (approximately) since its inception, there have been many subgroups with doctrinal differences ranging from barely noticeable to seemingly irreconcilable. This chart does a decent job at the big picture- tracing the influences of some of the more notable denominations.
