Frequently Asked Questions
Thank you for being interested in our ministry. We hope the questions below help you learn more about it.
1. Where do you get the questions you answer? The questions come from various places, including readers (see #3 below), high school and college students, children, adults, seminary students, those who go to church and those who don’t, Bible readers and non-Bible readers, pastors and ministers, non-Christians, and many others.
Some people ask questions from the perspective of life-long belief and devotion; others ask questions from a place of life-long skepticism and doubt. All questioners are welcome.
2. Where do you get the answers you give? Based on our faith-based convictions, we do our best to offer questioners Bible-based answers. (See our Belief Statement below.) Additionally, because the Bible tells readers to seek wisdom (e.g., Prov. 2:1-5), our articles often cite well-reviewed resources from reputable scholars, experienced pastors and ministers, and other educated experts and informed influencers to give readers their views on important topics.
3. Can I ask a question? Yes, anyone can ask a question. Email them to [email protected]. However, submitting a question doesn’t guarantee that an article answering it will appear on the website. Our team will determine if answering the questions aligns with the vision and policies of our website. While we don’t shy away from tough questions, we adhere to content and privacy policies.
4. Can I write for Christianity FAQ? Interested writers, who agree with the Belief Statement below, may email their responses to these questions for consideration as writers: (1) Why do you want to write for Christianity FAQ? (2) What ministry experience do you have, if any? (3) What writing experience do you have, if any? Also, please send examples of your writing, but not as attachments we have to download. Links are preferred.
5. Can I suggest changing an article that’s already published? Yes. For unknown reasons, some people think they need to be unkind when they do this, which is unnecessary. Please remember to provide the title if you are writing to offer feedback on an article. Also, please cite sources if you desire to correct, modify, or update information in an article.
6. Who governs Christianity FAQ? An Advisory Team provides counsel for Christianity FAQ because there is wisdom in having counselors (Prov. 15:22). The team consists of people who have committed their lives to Christian ministries, like pastors and educators. Non-ministerial professionals who have a deep devotion to Jesus Christ and the Bible are also an important part of the team.

Regarding Christian beliefs, Saint Augustine once said, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” While we at Christianity FAQ agree with Augustine’s sentiment, there are core convictions that we hold about the Bible and its teachings.
- We believe inspiration is a characteristic of Scripture that describes its nature as God-breathed (2 Tim. 3:16), meaning the Holy Spirit superintended the writings of the authors so that what they wrote were the words God wanted them to write (2 Pet. 1:20-21).
- We believe the Trinity refers to God existing in three persons (Matt. 28:19): the Father, who is fully God (John 6:27, 1 Pet. 1:2); the Son, who is fully God (John 1:1, Heb. 1:8); and the Holy Spirit, who is fully God (Acts 5:3-4). All three persons are co-equal in their deity, nature, will, and glory (Matt, 3:16-17, 2 Cor. 13:14).
- We believe because of Adam’s sin, all people are born with a sinful nature (Ps. 51:1-5, Eph. 2:3), which inclines them toward rebellion (Eph. 2:3, 6:4). All people sin (Ps. 14:3; Rom. 3:9-10) and are legally guilty before God (Gal. 3:10; Jas. 2:10-11).
- We believe Jesus Christ is fully God (John 1:1, 8:58, 20:28; Col. 1:19, 2:9; Heb. 1:8). He is the eternal second person of the Trinity and co-equal with the Father (John 10:30, 14:9; Rev. 1:8, 22:13), who existed as the Word before creation (John 1:3, Col. 1:16) from eternity past (Micah 5:2, John 8:58).
- We believe Jesus was conceived from the Holy Spirit, yet he was born to a human mother, Mary, a virgin (Is. 7:14; Luke 1:26-35). He had a real human body (Luke 24:39, 24:42). Although Jesus was tempted in every way people are (Matt. 4:1-11, Heb. 2:8), he was sinless (2 Cor. 5:21, Heb. 4:15).
- We believe Jesus died as a penal-substitutionary atonement for sin. It was penal (Isa. 53:4-6; Mark 10:45; 1 Cor. 5:7) because he took the punishment of sinful people (Gal. 3:13; 2 Cor. 5:141-5). It was substitutionary (Rom. 5:8; 2 Cor. 5:21) because he took the place of sinners (John 1:29; Heb. 9:26).
- We believe salvation is offered to all people through the proclamation of the gospel (Rom. 10:14), which is the announcement that Jesus, as God incarnate, lived a sinless life, was crucified for humanity’s sin, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven (Rom. 3:23, 6:23, 10:9-10).
- We believe sanctification results from salvation and especially a work of the Holy Spirit (1 Pet. 2:2, 2 Thess. 2:13, 2 Cor. 3:18) in cooperation with believers (Phil. 3:13-14, Col. 3:10).
- We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity (Matt. 28:19, Acts 5:3-4), along with the Father and the Son. He proceeds from the Father and Son (John 14:26, 15:26, 16:7) in an eternal relationship of dependence but not inferiority.
- We believe the universal Church is made up of all those who believe in Jesus (1 Cor. 12:28, Eph. 1:22-23, Col. 1:18), who is its Head (Eph. 5:23, Col. 1:18) and its builder (Mt. 16:18). The local church consists of believers in local assemblies (Acts 11:22, 13:1).
- We believe at the Second Coming, Jesus will physically (Acts 1:11) return to the earth with power (Matt. 24:30) and triumph in glory (Rev. 19:11-16).
