Christianity By Andrew Dwyre

The Origin Story

Christianity is considered a universal religion. It originates from Palestine in about 33 CE.

Diffusion, Dispersal, and Evolution

The main method of Christianity's diffusion was relocation diffusion through missionaries. It was diffused throughout parts of Northern Africa, Europe, and other places around Pergamum, Sinope, etc. After the diffusion, Christianity began to separate into different religions. Christianity is divided into 5 main groups: Church of the East, Oriental Orthodoxy, Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism.

The SacreD

Christianity is usually associated with the symbol of the cross.

The major beliefs of traditional Christianity are that Jesus is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that his life on earth, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven are proof of God's love for humanity and God's forgiveness of human sins; and that by faith in Jesus one may attain salvation and eternal life. Christians' sacred text is the Bible.

To worship, Christians go to churches. Aside from churches, sacred places to Christians are mainly places that relate to Jesus of Nazareth like Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
