The Catholic Church, also known as the Roman Catholic Church, is the world's largest Christian church, claiming more than a billion members.[1] Led by the Pope, it defines its mission as spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, administering the sacraments and exercising charity.
The Catholic Church is among the oldest institutions in the world and has played a prominent role in the history of Western civilisation.[2] It teaches that its bishops are the successors of Jesus Christ's apostles, that the Pope, as the successor of St. Peter, possesses a universal primacy, and that it is the one true Church founded by Jesus Christ.
Catholic doctrine maintains that the Church is infallible when it dogmatically teaches a doctrine of faith or morals.[3][4][note 1][5] Catholic worship is centred on the Eucharist in which the Church teaches bread and wine are supernaturally transubstantiated into the body and blood of Christ.
