This question is very broad in its nature. However, I'll try to do the best I can and be as brief as possible. The word "Christian" itself is also very broad and used very loosely in the United States today. But to answer the original question, most Christians believe the following things about God.

1) There is only one God, but He reveals Himself to us in His word as three different persons

A) The Father

B) The Son

C) The Holy Ghost

2) God is omnipotent (all powerful), omnipresent (everywhere at once), omniscient (all knowing), & omnisapient (has all wisdom).

3) God is the supreme being of the universe. He created the earth and the heavens in six days and all that in them is and he rested on the seventh day.

4) God is self existent.

These are just a few basics about God that I can answer without getting into deeper theology.

Answer

They particularly believe that Jesus Christ is God, and as such He came to suffer and die for the sins of the whole world. That means He loves everyone, and also that His atoning work is complete and so there is nothing we need to do, or can do to earn our salvation.

John 3:16 (King James Version)

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

that he is the holy father
