What do Christians believe?
Christianity teaches that, in order to be saved and be granted access to heaven after death, one must place one’s faith entirely in the finished work of Christ on the cross. Christians believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that its teaching is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
Christians believe in one God that exists in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. A close relationship with God is made possible because of the work of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Being a Christian is not about strict rules and regulations, or performing rituals, or even going to church. It’s about a friendship – a friendship with Jesus Christ. Jesus said that knowing him is the doorway to a special relationship with God.

You be the judge. If Christ did not walk on this earth, if he did not suffer and die, if he did not rise from the dead, then Christianity is false and Christians are to be pitied. But if the message of the Bible is true, if Jesus lived, died and overcame death, then you need to seriously consider accepting the facts and start living a life that is full of purpose and promise.
The evidence demands a verdict
