What is Christianity?

Christianity is one of the world’s major monotheistic (following one god) religions. Christians believe in Jesus Christ and follow his teachings believing that Jesus is God’s own son. Jesus, as the son of God, was human and divine and lived on earth over 2,000 years ago. Followers of Jesus call themselves Christian.

Christians meet together in various denominations whose practices may differ slightly depending on their historical or cultural. Some churches follow very formal worship procedures while some churches are very informal in their worship practices.

However, despite looking and sounding different, Christian churches share a set of beliefs about Jesus. These are spelled out in the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.

All volunteers in ACT schools teaching Christian Education sign a statement in support of the Apostles’ Creed.
