Christian beliefs have been around for two thousand years, and there is no shortage of debate among Christian churches when it comes to doctrine. But in spite of all the minor differences, there are five basic truths that every Christian church agrees upon.

Key Points:

  • The Bible is God’s word.
  • God is three in one.
  • Jesus is fully God.
  • We are saved by faith in Jesus Christ.
  • There’s life after death.

Quote This:

John 11:25-26 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.”
