Abstract
Language is a communication tool that can be used to express thoughts and emotions. At the same time, it is also a symbol system carrying various information. Therefore, formation and development of language has marks of different aspects of social life, reflecting a distinctive culture of a certain society. As an influential religion in the western world, Christianity enriches English language. This paper illustrates the influence of Christianity on English from formation, specification and development. For Chinese English learners, it is inevitable to encounter Christianity while learning English. Therefore it also proposes some pieces of advice on English teaching and English learning.
