Many Christians believe that a link between their religion and the fish symbol is seen in the Greek word for fish, ichthus, spelled: Iota Chi Theta Upsilon Sigma. That is an acrostic which has many translations in English but one of the most popular among Christians is "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior", Iesous (Jesus) CHristos (Christ) THeou (God) Uiou (Son) Soter (Savior).
During early Christianity, Christians were often put to death for practicing their faith, so they worshiped in secret places. A fish painted on the outside door of a house let other Christians know that they would be safe and welcome inside.
