Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Proponents of Christianity, or Christians, believe that Jesus is the Christ whose coming as the Messiah was foretold in the Hebrew Bible, or Old Testament, and whose activities are set forth in the New Testament. Christianity is the largest religion in the world. In 2020, Christianity had more than 2.4 billion followers. Christians make up the majority of the population in 157 states. Similarly, the doctrine of baptism, the sacrament, and the sacraments differs within Christianity. The common ground for Christianity is the confession of the Triune God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Based on Christianity, Jesus is the Son of God who served, suffered, and died on the cross, but rose from the dead to save mankind. Jesus' life's work, teachings, and salvation are crystallized in the gospel, or "good news." They are described in the four canonical gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Christianity was born in the first century as a sect of Judaism. However, Finns did not begin to convert to Christianity until the 11th century. The first crusade to Finland was carried out in 1155 by the King of Sweden and Henrik, an Englishman who was appointed Bishop of Finland. It was followed by two other crusades to Häme and Karelia in the 13th century. Thanks to the work of conversion, Jesus was first considered in Finland to be one of the gods among others. He lived, worked, taught people, and gathered followers, mainly in the region of Galilee. The Followers of Jesus established Christianity largely based on the teachings of Jesus. According to Christianity, people who believe in Jesus and follow his teachings will receive salvation, that is, they will not be physically destroyed after death, but will live forever happy with God in a better place, in heaven. According to Christianity, this is the only way to get to heaven. God is carrying out His plans and speaking to mankind through Jesus. The second part of the Bible, the New Testament, tells about the life and teachings of Jesus as described by contemporaries. Christians believe the Bible, or at least the story of the New Testament, to be true, either directly or figuratively.
