"We should seek the way of peace and finally come to peace with God."
Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, who lived two thousand years ago in what is now Israel and Palestine. Christianity holds that the life of Jesus, his death by crucifixion, and his resurrection have saved the world from sin and triumphed over death. Jesus proclaimed the coming of the Kingdom of God here on earth and taught that the greatest commandments in the Bible are to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
The cross represents the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in whom Christians find an ideal model and guide for right living and a savior who can transform their lives.
