Christianity

Christianity, major religion stemming from the life, teachings, and death of Jesus of Nazareth the Christ, or the Anointed One of God in the 1st century CE. It has become the largest of the world’s religions and, geographically, the most widely diffused of all faiths. Not only is religion growing overall, but Christianity specifically is growing. With a 1.17% growth rate, almost 2.56 billion people will identify as a Christian by the middle of 2022. By 2050, that number is expected to top 3.33 billion believers
