Christianity has been around for two thousand years. Christianity is also a monotheistic religion in which they believe in One God. However they believe God is three gods combined into one God.

Christians believe that the Christ’s resurrection is the triumph of good over evil and life over death and has made eternal life available to them.

The actual funeral service itself begins with the priest or other minister reading aloud such as: ‘I am the resurrection and the life,’ saith the Lord; ‘he that believeth in me shall never die,’ and: ‘I know that my redeemer liveth….’ Then the Psalm ...
