Despite many important differences of interpretation and opinion of the Bible on which Christianity is based, Christians share a set of common beliefs that they hold as essential to their faith as a monotheistic religion.

According to the synoptic gospels, there are two underlying principles of Christianity. The first is that ‘the Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with your entire mind, and with all your strength’, while the second is ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’.
