Q:

What are the main beliefs of Christianity?

A:

Christians believe that there is one triune God, who is father, son and holy spirit. They believe that salvation comes from a belief in Jesus as the son of God and in his death and resurrection. Salvation is not earned but rather comes by faith alone.

Christians also believe that the church is a representative of God's body on earth. They also believe in baptism, but some denominations have differing views on infant baptism. Christians believe in prayer as the means in which to communicate with God. Some Christian traditions allow believers to pray directly to God, while others require pray to occur through intermediaries.
