Christianity

(Redirected from Christian)

Christianity (/krɪstɪænɪti/) is a religion. Christian beliefs vary somewhat between groups and individuals, but centre around belief in God and a first century CE prophet called Jesus.

Christianity has been the dominant religion in Europe, where English originated. Therefore it has had a significant impact on English, not only through its main religious text, The Bible, but also religious sayings, prayers, hymns, etc.

Christian missionaries often teach English as a foreign language.
