Christianity

Christianity started in Southwest Asia and today is the most widespread of the world's major faiths. There are two billion followers of this religion and the people call themselves, "Christians". Christians believe that God the son is Jesus, known to his followers as Jesus Christ. Sacraments are sacred rituals that shape Christians lives. The sacrament of baptism involves the use of water to mark a persons entry into the church. The sacrament of Holy Communion is practiced to signify Jesus's last meal with the bread being his body and wine his blood. Places of worship are called churches and almost all display a cross. Worship leaders are called priest and ministers and they teach from the holy book of bible. Christmas and Easter are the most celebrated holidays. On Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus and Easter Sunday is a day of rejoicing to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus. Judea and Jerusalem are both considered holy places.


Monotheism is the common belief that Judaism, Christianity & Islam all share as well as the biblical figure, Abraham.
