    I can't imagine how one could be a Christian without understanding that the soul/mind exists separately from the material body.

    We are not bodies that have souls.

    We are souls that currently have bodies.

    (Mind is a product of the soul, not the body.)

    [C. S. Lewis said something like this, but I could not find the exact quote.]

    Yes, there can, God being the prime example, and angels being lesser examples of the same thing. In addition are humans who have died physically.

    Our mind is a part of the body our spirit and soul use while we are here on this Earth.

    Awkward question, because unless 100% of the 2,200,000,000 Christians in the world do "actively" believe that, then the answer would be no!

      100% of Christians don't believe much of anything. We can't even all agree on the Nicene Creed.

    If you mean the organ called the brain: NO. If you mean the element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experiences, to think, and to feel; the faculty of consciousness and thought: YES.

    If one believes in an incorporeal God, then yes.Β  I would guess that "all" Christians don't fall into the same category as to what is believed.
