Non-denominational Christianity

By Luke Sumpter, 4th hour Social Studies

History of the Religion

Christianity as a whole began around 2,000 years ago, and was founded by Jesus Christ, or Jesus. After he was crucified on the cross, his followers started a new religion, Christianity, branching off of Judaism, the most common religion around the times of the Old and New testament. It continued to spread after Jesus' death and resurrection, and is now one of the biggest religions today, as it has followers in almost every part of the world.

Beliefs of the Religion

There are many beliefs within the Christian religion, as with all religions. Some of these beliefs include:

The belief that there is a God.

The belief in only 1 God, not multiple. Non-denominational Christianity is monotheistic.

The belief in the Trinity, which is The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.

That God created all the world, universe, and all living things within it.

That there is a Satan and demons that serve him.

That there is a Heaven and a Hell.

That God "sent his one and only son, so that whoever believes in him, shall not perish, but have eternal life," John 3:16 of the New Testament. This explains how God sent his son, Jesus, to die for us and to take away all of our sins in order to save us, and so that everyone who believes that Jesus died for us will have an opportunity to be saved and go to Heaven to be with God.
