Christianity is the religion based on the teachings and works of Jesus. Jesus is the Christ. The word "christ" means anointed one. Therefore, Jesus is the anointed one from God the Father who came to this world--fulfilled the Old Testament laws and prophecies. Jesus, the Christ, died on the cross and rose from the dead physically. He performed many miracles which were recorded in the gospels by the eyewitnesses. He is divine in nature as well as human. Thus, he has two natures and is worthy of worship and prayer.
