Bible Verses About Christianity

Who is God?

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” (Exodus 3:14)

For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. (Psalm 96:5)

Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. (Micah 7:18)

Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Psalm 90:2)

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. (Psalm 19:1)

Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 100:3)

For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. (1 John 3:20)


Who is Jesus?

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:6-8)

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. (Colossians 1:19-20)

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form. (Colossians 2:9)

The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:28)


How Can We be Close to God?

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:23-24)

I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. (John 10:9)

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. (John 10:11)
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12)

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” (Romans 10:9-11)
