God loved us so much that He gave His Son. Christ died for our sins. Christ rose from the dead.
In other religions, people vainly attempt to reach God and earn their own salvation by doing good deeds and by refraining from bad behavior.
The problem for those people is that no one can ever be good enough to earn his own salvation. In other words, no one can ever reach God through his own efforts.
That is why God made a way for us by sending His Son Jesus to live a holy and sinless life and suffer the payment for our sins. In this way, if we believe in Jesus and choose to follow Him, we are forgiven by God and given new life.
Another critical difference is that in Christianity people can truly have genuine assurance of their salvation. They can be certain that they are going to heaven because their salvation is anchored in what Jesus already did for them. As a result, Christians have peace in their hearts about where they will go when their lives on earth are finished.
They have to continually try to earn their salvation—even until their last day and dying breath. They cannot experience the restful assurance that God gives those who trust in Jesus Christ.

The apostle Peter wrote to encourage us in this, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. Jewish Christians: This was the group founded and led by Jesus' disciples and led by his brother James. 2 Being a reform movement within Judaism, they believed that salvation was achieved by performing temple sacrifices and by following the dietary and behavioral rules of the Torah -- the first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament).
Unconditional salvation is similar to what is believed by other Christians in that the atonement of Jesus Christ redeems all humanity from the chains of death and they are resurrected to their perfect frames.
Christian maturity requires a radical reordering of one’s priorities, changing over from pleasing self to pleasing God and learning to obey God. The key to maturity is consistency, perseverance in doing those things we know will bring us closer to God. answers How is Christianity Any Different Than Other Religions?
