Following Jesus means you accept the facts about him. You are convinced that he lived, taught, died, and rose from the grave. He then showed people that he was alive with many convincing proofs. Finally, he ascended to the Father’s right hand, where he remains until he comes back to earth for a final judgment.
There is also a long list of truths that you believe as a follower of Jesus. The Godhead exists in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God gave us the Bible, and it has everything we need for life and Godliness. We believe there is one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. Doctrine is essential to know and accept.
Christianity is not just the acceptance of certain knowledge. It is the transformation of a person to live like Jesus. We are a new creation in Jesus, and now we will live in the way God desires.
It is essential to believe in Jesus. It is crucial to have the correct doctrine. But unless it changes your life, having faith is worthless. Christianity is rooted in faith and demonstrated in action.
