This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at Christianity. Christianity is the most populous of the world's religions, with 2.4 billion followers. The 2011 Census for England and Wales recorded approximately 33 million people who identify as Christian, with the Scottish census of the same year reporting nearly 3 million.
Christianity is a monotheistic religion, believing in one God. This belief is complicated, however, by the belief in the Trinity, or that God is both one and also three, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Christians believe that God created the world, that Jesus, his son, was born, both divine and human, to "redeem" (save) the world and that the Holy Spirit sustains all life. Christians have long argued over a great many teachings, but all practise baptism, which is sometimes called "christening" and is understood to be the process by which a person becomes a Christian. Sometimes baptism is referred to as being "born again" and is considered to make a person free from sin (i.e. both specific wrong actions a person commits and the general tendency people have to make bad choices in life).
