The Beliefs, Practices, and History of Christianity


The World of Christianity

Barely two millennia old, Christianity boasts over two billion adherents, almost a third of the world's population. With a 2,000-year history of evangelism, expansion, and renewal, the sheer number of sects, communities, and traditions it embraces can be hard to keep track of. Fortunately, Christianity has kept up with the times and found its way to the Web. You can learn about it, practice it, and keep up to date with the Christian faith daily online.

The Beliefs, Practices, and History of Christianity

Christianity comes in many forms, with such different sects as the politically minded Liberation Theologists, the evangelical southern Baptists, and the conservative Calvinists. Yet they all center on the immutable belief in Jesus Christ as the messiah; a belief based upon the Jewish Bible and conception of God. This section will explore Christian beliefs, practices and history.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Although Catholicism is part of the greater Christian faith, it has its own guide since the breadth of the institution is so comprehensive. See our findingDulcinea Catholicism Web Guide.
  • There are some disinterested Web sites dealing with Christianity, but the overwhelming majority of the sites in this guide are Christian in origin and evangelical in intent. Keep this in mind as you read through these sites.
