Jesus came to Earth as God in human form.
What Christians believe is summed up well in the bible, in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, “…Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures say. He was buried, and three days later he was raised to life, as the Scriptures say.”
Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to deal with people’s rejection of God and wrongdoing. He took the punishment we deserve so that we can have forgiveness and a fresh start.
Christians believe that Jesus rose from the dead showing that sin has been dealt with and that death has been defeated. That means that those who trust in Jesus will be resurrected with him and will live forever.
Christians believe that the bible teaches us the truth about God and about how to live his way. You can read the bible online at bible.com, or get in touch if you would like a free physical bible, to keep.
