Summary

Christianity stems from the teaching of Jesus Christ in the 1st Century. Christians are divided into various groups or denominations who vary slightly in their beliefs and practices. Christian denominations include Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, Methodist and United Reformed.

Christians believe in one God who created everything that exists. They believe he came to Earth as Jesus Christ, suffered and died in order to show his love for, and become a closer part of his creation.

Christians believe that by having faith in Jesus and by living in accordance with his teachings they will be rewarded with everlasting life in heaven.

Key words are highlighted in the text and repeated in the border, to help reinforce the new vocabulary, while teacher's notes explain how to use the books and suggest further activities and useful websites. An ideal introduction to religion for young children!
