The belief that God stepped into history in the form of Jesus Christ, and allowed himself to be killed in a degrading manner in order to save humanity, and that those who believe this and accept him as their personal Savior will indeed join him in heaven.

One of a popular human sacrifice religion that still exist in the world today. Christianity still awe at the blood and body of a godman to give eternal life. This is all demonic. Chrisitianity became popular because of good marketing stategies and fake evengelistic miracles. Anyone knows that praying to a divinity long enough for blessing and miracles do happen. Jesus is a god, people do know that. But using the roman world to spread the religion made it more popular as the romans and their tribe were smarter and more intelligent. But then again, human sacrifice is one thing that should be abolished in a religion.

Christianity was founded in Palestine by the followers of Jesus. One of the world's major belief systems, it predominates in Europe and the Americas, where it has been a powerful historical force and cultural influence, but it also claims adherents in virtually every country of the world.
The central teachings 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 alone in Jesus one may attain salvation and eternal life. This teaching is embodied in the Bible, specifically in the New Testament, but Christians accept also the Old Testament as sacred and authoritative Scripture.
Christian ethics derive to a large extent from the Jewish tradition as presented in the Old Testament, particularly the Ten Commandments, but with some difference of interpretation based on the practice and teachings of Jesus. Christianity may be further generally defined in terms of its practice of corporate worship and that these are usually conducted by trained clergy within organized churches. There are, however, many different forms of worship, many interpretations of the role of the organized clergy, and many variations in polity and church organization within Christianity.
For 250 years it was a martyrs' church; the persecutions were fueled by the refusal of Christians to worship the Roman State, the Roman Emperor, and the Catholic Cult's Pope. There were persecutions under Nero, Domitian, Trajan and the other Antonines, Maximin, Decius, Valerian, and Diocletian and Galerius; Decius ordered the first official persecution in 250. In 313, Constantine I and Licinius announced toleration of Christianity in the Edict of Milan when he realized that if you can't beat them, join with them. In the East the church passed from persecution directly to Roman Imperial control, inaugurated by Constantine, established later as the Roman Catholic Cult, and always a problem for the Orthodox churches. In the West the church remained independent because of the weakness of the emperor and the well-established authority of the apostles of Jesus Christ.Source(s): Yahoo Education - Encyclopedia: Christianity

God came to Earth in the form of a Man named Jesus Christ with the expressed purpose to die for our sins and rise from the dead, so that we have the actual choice not to face judgment of Hell if we don't want to. It involves making a free choice of accepting Christ as your personal Savior and Lord so that a real and vital relationship can be established with God. As an expression of love towards God and empowered by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit the Christian can be motivated to live a life that is more pleasing to God rather than seeking constant rebellion by ignoring God or treating God in a contemptible fashion. One does not go to heaven by earning anything; one goes to heaven by accepting what God has to offer.

It's the belief that you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior, and accept that he took your as a ransom for your sins. You're a pathetic separated individual, not worthy of God's glory so a guy who died for you 2,000 years ago, and is coming back soon, is really God. They should all go wait out in the fields until the second coming. The Voyager space probe will reach the next star in 70,000 years. Let's see which one comes first.Source(s): Atheist

Christianity is the belief that the essence of God was incarnated in to flesh.
This was so that His unleavened or sinless blood could cover our iniquity.
In which believers in Him could be justified and just as He died and rose again....
we might also share a similar eternal fate.

Look at the word.
Christianity is a belief that Christ is divine. There are many different sects of Christianity and they argue about the details of Christ being divine. But that is the broadest definition.

To summarize, it is the belief in the male incarnation of God identified as Jesus Christ, who was conceived through divine conception, and was born as a life sacrifice for the sins of mankind.
If you can believe that.
