Introducing Christianity

Christianity is a world religion based on the life and teaching of Jesus, who was known as the Christ or anointed one. Followers of Jesus are known as Christians. Christianity along with Islam and Judaism share some common roots and each are monotheistic, believing in one God. Christians believe that God is revealed in three distinct persons:

God the Father/Creator ——- God the Son/Jesus Christ —— God the Holy Spirit/living presence

known as the trinity, a communion of love with three expressions. The Trinity was defined by a Council in the early church, in part drawing on scripture. The apostle Paul concludes his second letter to the church in Corinth with a closing blessing which has become known as the ‘Grace’ and which describes aspects of the persons of God:

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
