The core beliefs of Christianity are extremely important because they are the principles that run through the entirety of the religion many of us believe in.

Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Although He was entirely mortal, He also remained fully divine. We believe they can obtain eternal life by accepting His teachings and trusting in Him. Thomas Fitzhugh Sheets wants to convey this foundation of Christianity in his book The Land of the Promise.

That said, we’d like everybody to join us in discussing these core beliefs, which many of us unfortunately forget.

What Is the Origin of Christianity and How Did It Begin?

The miraculous conception, adult ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, often known as Jesus Christ, are the origins of Christianity. Christ was conceived in a lowly Jewish household in Palestine (modern-day Israel) more than 2000 years ago. Mary, a young peasant woman, was his mother.

Christians hold that Jesus was entirely human and divine since his father was the Holy Spirit of God. His early adherents eventually came to regard him as God’s sentinel, the Messiah, who would deliver God’s people from sin, servitude, and death. God sent His only begotten son, Jesus, into the world to help humanity comprehend God as a benevolent and loving parent.

Jesus endured the suffering that defined our human experience while alive. He performed miracles, spoke in parables, and gave sermons that imparted the values of loving God with all of one’s heart and one’s neighbor as oneself. He also led by example when he taught.

Christ educated others to be kind and forgiving by modeling these qualities for themselves. This was especially true for those who were viewed as social outcasts. One could even say that this is the main point of Jesus’ teaching methodology. But as we all know how the story goes, Jesus Christ was eventually crucified and was then resurrected. Following his resurrection, disciples of Jesus Christ propagated his teachings globally, founding the Christian Church. Approximately two billion Christians live in the world today.

What Are the Core Beliefs of the Church and What Do Christians Believe In?

Regarding the essential tenets of Christianity, Thomas Fitzhugh Sheets, like many Christians, believes in God’s promises, which Thomas discusses in his book The Land of the Promise. The most basic belief that Christianity holds dear is that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God. Jesus Christ was fully human yet remained fully divine, and if we were to believe and follow His teachings, all of us could inherit eternal life.

Christians hold that God raised Jesus from the dead, that he died on the cross for the sins of humanity, and that they believe Jesus will return when the end times are upon us. Christian belief also encompasses the concept of the Trinity, or the three aspects of God: God the Father, also known as the Creator, God the Son, sometimes known as the Redeemer, and God the Holy Spirit, also known as the Sanctifier.

Meanwhile, the Holy Spirit is God’s presence that can be felt worldwide.

What Sacred Texts Does Christianity Have?

The Bible is considered to be the sacred book of Christianity. It consists of the Old Testament, which is basically the Hebrew texts of Jesus’ time, and the New Testament, which contains writings concerning Jesus Christ and the early church.

If you were to read the Bible, you’d find the New Testament’s four gospels—a term that means “good news”—contain narratives of Jesus’ life, teachings, death, and resurrection. According to the New Testament, salvation is obtained by accepting and adhering to Jesus Christ’s teachings and believing in his death and resurrection.

The New Testament also teaches us that salvation is God’s gift that extends to people from all walks of life through Jesus Christ.

Keep the Core Beliefs of Christianity Close to Your Heart

Christianity represents more than just a set of doctrines and customs. It is an intimate connection with the universe’s most loving God. A God who was so moved by love that He spilled His own blood in order to fully pardon those who deserved His anger and judgment for their sins.

We hope that this article was helpful to you. Don’t forget to check out The Land of the Promise by Thomas Fitzhugh Sheets on the pages of his book on that Day.

Have a great day ahead, and may God keep blessing you and your family!
