  • Almost a third of the world’s population consider themselves Christian, making it the largest religion on earth.

  • Many Christians use the symbol of the Cross as an image for their faith. Jesus was killed by being nailed to a cross, an act Christians believe paid the price of their sins and allows them to be one with God.

 

  • Many Christians believe in “sacraments,” acts of devotion that show a life dedicated to Christ. Most Christians believe in two main sacraments—baptism and the Eucharist—which come from Christ’s instruction in the Bible. Other sacraments include confirmation, penance, marriage, anointing the sick, and ordination of religious leaders

 

  • According to the U.S. Department of State, in more than 60 countries Christians face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors because of their faith in Christ

 

  • The “Golden Rule,” often known as “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is credited to Jesus in the book of Matthew
