Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life, teachings, and miracles of Jesus Christ, who is the focal point of the Christian faith. It is the world's largest religion, with over 2.4 billion followers, or 33% of the global population, known as Christians. Christians make up a majority of the population in 158 countries and territories. They believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the savior of humanity whose coming as the Messiah (the Christ) was prophesied in the Old Testament. Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.
Christianity grew out of Judaism and began as a Second Temple Judaic sect in the mid-1st century. Originating in the Roman province of Judea, it quickly spread to Europe, Syria, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Transcaucasia, Egypt, Ethiopia and the Indian subcontinent, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire. Following the Age of Discovery, Christianity spread to the Americas, Oceania, sub-Saharan Africa and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization. Christian theology is summarized in creeds such as the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed. These professions of faith state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, descended into hell, and rose from the dead, in order to grant eternal life to those who believe in him and trust in him for the remission of their sins. The creeds further maintain that Jesus physically ascended into heaven, where he reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, and that he will return to judge the living and the dead and grant eternal life to his followers. His incarnation, earthly ministry, crucifixion and resurrection are often referred to as "the gospel", meaning "good news". The term gospel also refers to written accounts of Jesus' life and teaching, four of which—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are considered canonical and included in the Christian Bible, as established by the 5th century for the ancient undivided Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions before the East–West Schism.
Throughout its history, Christianity has weathered schisms and theological disputes that have resulted in many distinct churches and denominations. Worldwide, the three largest branches of Christianity are the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the various denominations of Protestantism. The Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches broke communion with each other in the East–West Schism of 1054. Protestantism came into existence in the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, splitting from the Catholic Church.
Why buy this domain name?
If you've ever attempted to name a company you'll know that choosing the right brand name is an art in itself. The best domain names were taken over 10 years ago but in today's modern Internet age the domain name is the brand and it's integral to choose the right name for your company, a name that captures the essence of your business.
Giving your brand the right name is much like naming your own child. It has to be unique, but at the same time, it should be simple and memorable for people outside the family. Particular sounds inspire positive emotions and they result in experiences that are liked, remembered, and shared. Marketing and PR companies have been leveraging this strategy for decades to reinforce positive, memorable experiences through sound.
The best company names are short, snappy, emotion-driven and memorable as a result. If you're struggling to name your company think about the emotions that you want to be felt by your target customer. A 2003 study by neuroscientist Vilanyanur Ramachandran detailed the relationship between certain parts of the brain and metaphors. In the study Ramachandran concluded that sounds are metaphors for images and that people experience sounds through tastes and colors. The instant we hear a new word our brains immediately work trying to make sense of it: Does it sound like something we've heard before? How does it feel? What does it remind us of?
According to scientific studies, the average person can remember only seven digits at any one time. If you want your target customers to remember your brand name and if you want it to jump out at them, the rule of thumb is to make it as short and as catchy as possible.
A great name can create buzz, position you as a true leader and innovator, and reinforce your value proposition in one word. That's powerful! It can convey a culture or a position, and differentiate a company, product or service from the rest of the market. Whereas a poor name can negate the work you do to build a position in the market.
