Origins of Christian Religion

The origins of Christian religion state that this faith is monotheistic, which believes in one God. It centers on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, as presented in the New Testament.

Christians believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, God the father is God and the Holy Spirit is in fact a manifestation of God. This is the basis of the origins of Christian religion.

Jesus as the Messiah was prophesized in the Hebrew bible, which is a part of scripture which is common to Christianity and Judaism. The date of origin of Christianity was in the 1st century and the date of origin of Judaism is 1300 years earlier.

The origins of Christian religion began as a Jewish sect and is known as an Abrahamic religion. Christians are comprised of Roman Catholics and the many Protestant religions.

Christians believe that Jesus was sent by God, suffered, died from crucifixion, buried, resurrected from the dead, to open the way to heaven to those who believe in him.

Most christian religious denominations believe that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead and grant eternal life to those worthy.

The message of Christ is referred to as the Gospel.

Creeds are statements or confessions of religious beliefs. The most popular creeds used in worship by Western Christians were developed between the 2nd and 9th centuries. These creeds form the summary of Christian doctrine and are known as the Apostles Creed.

Creeds are the statement of articles of the Christian faith which are.

  • Belief in God the Father, Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Holy Spirit.

  • The death, descent into hell, resurrection and ascension of Christ.

  • The holiness of the church and communion of saints.

  • Christ’s second coming, The Day of Judgement and salvation of the faithful.

    There were three sets of Creeds put forward and most Christians accept these creeds, the Nicene, Chalcedonian and Athanasian. The Trinity refers to the teaching that the one God comprises three distinct co-existing persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These can be called the Godhead. However, remember there is one God not three.

    Most Christians believe that human beings experience divine judgement and are rewarded either with eternal life or eternal damnation. This includes the general judgement at the Resurrection of the dead.
