The selected religious space is a church where Christians gather to practice their Christian faith. The practice of the Christian faith involves meeting at least once a week in a church where people worship God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Sharp et al., 2017). It is one of the largest religions in the world with approximately 3 billion believers. The core belief is in Jesus Christ who died on the cross in the first century to save humanity from the curse of sin.
People gather in the religious spaces to praise God, worship Him, and hear a word from the holy book. Christians believe that the bible is the holy book written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (Sharp et al., 2017). Believers gather to listen to a preacher or teacher to get the word or instruction from God.
The belief system involves accepting Jesus as the savior of the world through his death on the cross. Believers have to believe in their hearts and confess with their mouths that Jesus is Lord. Confession is the beginning of a journey of faith (Kuhn & Sanou, 2020). Believers emphasize what Jesus did on the cross as compared to what they do. Another element of the belief system is that God will rapture the believers to new heaven in the end days. The bible is the utmost source of authority. People should not teach or live against the teachings of the holy book (Kuhn & Sanou, 2020). People who go against the teachings can ask for forgiveness of their sins and be sure of remission of their sins. Christians aspire to spread the gospel to others by sharing the good news about the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
