Sacred Narratives

The Christian story of Jesus is sacred to Christians. The biblical stories of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection reveal God's plan for humanity, which includes salvation and eternal life.

Ultimate Reality and Divine Beings

Christians are monotheists who believe that the one God has an internal relationship of three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Christians also believe in the existence of angels and demons.

Human Nature and the Purpose of Existence

Christianity teaches that human beings were created good by a loving God. While being prone to sin and in need of grace, they are partners in accomplishing God's plan for existence.

Suffering and the Problem of Evil

Their belief in a good and powerful creator God has prompted Christians to search for an explanation for the existence of evil. There is no single authoritative Christian response.

Afterlife and Salvation

At the center of the Christian religion is the story of how God achieved reconciliation with humanity through Christ.
