What are some core beliefs of Christianity?
Christians believe that there is only one God, whom they call Father as Jesus Christ taught them.
Christians recognize Jesus as the Son of God who was sent to save mankind from death and sin. Jesus Christ taught that he was Son of God. His teachings can be summarized, briefly as the love of God and love of one's neighbor. Jesus said that he had come to fulfill God's law rather than teach it.
Christians believe in justification by faith - that through their belief in Jesus as the Son of God, and in his death and resurrection, they can have a right relationship with God whose forgiveness was made once and for all through the death of Jesus Christ.
Justification by Faith
What are some unique rules, customs, or beliefs of Christianity?
Celebrating St. Patrick's Day
It's a time-honored tradition to celebrate the anniversary of a saint's death with a day of feasting and festivities.
Traditionally, saying grace was a way to reaffirm thanks to God for the day's bounty and for man's dominion over the animals. A modern interpretation of the prayer would be that it's an affirmation of faith, an expression of gratitude to God and recognition of the cycle of life.
Saying Grace
Historically, Advent ushered in the beginning of the church year. It was a time for fasting and personal reflection that spanned a number of Sundays (from Nov. 15 or 30 depending on the church involved), and ended on Christmas Eve. Today, it's a more lighthearted activity that enhances the enjoyment of the days leading up to Christmas.

Denomination - A recognized autonomous branch of the Christian church
Three symbols used by Christians and their meaning. (Drawn on paper)
Icthys symbol
Among the symbols employed by the early Christians, that of the fish seems to have ranked first in importance. Its popularity among Christians was due principally to the famous acrostic consisting of the initial letters of five Greek words forming the word for fish (Ichthus), which words briefly but clearly described the character of Christ and the claim to worship of believers
Chi Rho symbol
The Chi Rho is formed by superimposing the first two letters chi and rho in such a way to produce the monogram. Widespread in ancient Christianity
the cross is a symbol of the atonement and reminds Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity. It represents Jesus' victory over sin and death, since it is believed that through his death and resurrection he conquered death itself.
Describe the following: Easter and Christmas
Christmas is the annual Christian festival celebrating Christs birth, held on December 25th
Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the day he came back to life, and held on the first Sunday after the spring equinox
Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. This holiday is celebrated to remember the palm tree leaves/branches scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem
Good Friday
Good Friday is a religious holiday that commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, and/or Easter Friday
Resurrection: Resurrection (anglicized from Latin resurrectio) is the concept of a living being coming back to life after death. It is a religious concept, where it is used in two distinct respects: a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing (Christian idealism, realized eschatology), or else a belief in a singular resurrection of the dead at the end of the world.
Baptism: A Christian rite of admission and adoption, almost invariably with the use of water, into the Christian Church generally and also a particular church.
What is a pope?: Catholics recognize the pope as a successor to Saint Peter, whom, according to Roman Catholic teaching, Jesus named as the "shepherd" and "rock" of the Catholic Church, which according to Catholic dogma is the one true Church founded by Christ.
Who is the current pope?: The current pope is Francis:
Describe the following people or positions: Cardinal and Bishop
Cardinal: A cardinal is a member of the 'Sacred College', the group of priests chosen by the Pope to run the Roman Catholic Church. Cardinals may be chosen by the Pope, but they in their turn are the men who will elect a new Pope on the death of the current incumbent.
Bishop: From the Roman Empire's recognition of Christianity in the 4th century ad until the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, the bishop was the chief pastor, priest, administrator, and ruler of his diocesan Christian community.
Describe the following positions: a Saint and a Patron Saint
A saint is one who has been recognized for having an exceptional degree of holiness. While the English term "saint" originated in Christianity, historians of religion now use the term "in a more general way to refer to the state of special holiness that many religions attribute to certain people
A patron saint is a saint who in different Christian denominations is regarded as the tutelary spirit or heavenly advocate of a nation, place, craft, activity, class, clan, family, or person.
What is an apostle?
During the life and ministry of Jesus in the first century AD, the apostles were his closest followers and became the primary teachers of the gospel message of Jesus.
Who was Paul of Tarsus and what role did he play in the spread of Christianity?
Paul is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the history of the Western world. Just a quick look at the headlines of his life are enough to understand his impact; his works are some of the earliest Christian documents that we have, 13 of the 27 books of the bible are written by him, and he's the hero of another, Acts of the Apostles.
Who was Peter?
Peter, according to the New Testament, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, leaders of the early Christian Church. The Roman Catholic Church considers him to be the first pope, ordained by Jesus in the "Rock of My Church" dialogue in Matthew 16:18
Peter was one of twelve apostles chosen by Jesus from his first disciples. Originally a fisherman, he played a leadership role and was with Jesus during events witnessed by only a few apostles, such as the Transfiguration.
How was Peter significant to Christianity?
How do many Christians believe he died? Where is he buried?
According to Christian tradition, Peter was crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar. It is traditionally held that he was crucified upside down at his own request, since he saw himself unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus Christ. Tradition holds that he was crucified at the site of the Clementine Chapel. His mortal remains are contained in the underground Confessio of St. Peter's Basilica
