What is Christianity?

The term "Christian" comes from the New Testament book of Acts, where Luke (the likely author) explains that followers (or "disciples") of Jesus were first called "Christians" in the city of Antioch (Acts 11:26). The term stuck, and quickly came to define all those who believed in and followed Jesus of Nazareth.

Christianity is therefore a monotheistic faith that holds the first-century Jewish leader named Jesus of Nazareth to be the divine Son of God (John 3:16) sent to redeem the world from its sins (Romans 10:9-10). Christian beliefs about Jesus are drawn essentially from the New Testament.
Definition of Protestant: Protestantism, as a historical movement, began in October 1517, when a monk named Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the wall of a German church. Luther's protests against the Catholic Church and his enunciation of doctrinal differences gave him and his followers the name "Protestant" and launched the Protestant Reformation.
While the term "Protestant" historically referred to those who broke their allegiance to the Roman Catholic Church during the tumult of the Protestant Reformation, it has since come to describe virtually all non-Catholic Christians (particularly in the West), including Anglicans, Methodists, Baptists and Presbyterians, among others.
