Undying factors of christianity:
Prayer: our connection between us and God
The foundation stones of christianity: The important pieces that created the structure of the beliefs of the church.
Scriptures: Jesus did not write down his teachings so they have been passed down by word until the apostles wrote down his memories, which eventually became the new testament.
Creeds: statements of beliefs. Creeds are used so that all Christians profess the same faith
Church structure/Bishops: After the death of Jesus, Churches immediately began to form in Europe. Each church has a bishop as an overseer. Bishops are appointed as the successors of the apostles. this structure with the bishops is still the structure that churches use today.
Ecumenical council: Created to resolve conflicts in the catholic church.

Jesus is what christians believe to be the messiah, which means that he is our saviour.
