Christian is followers of Christ, who believe He is our salvation and only way to eternal life, simply accepting Him as having died for our sins. He paid our price for sin since none are good enough nor can do good enough to earn it. So accepting Jesus' blood payment and are reborn into His spirit through faith. Christians are the body of Christ and all one with Him.
A Christian is an otherwise normal human being who at some point in life decided that their goal in life is to follow the path laid out by their Master Jesus Christ.
A Christian is a follower of Christ and His teachings, which can be found in the King James version of the Holy Bible. This means that a Christian is a "born again" believer who has repented of his sins and placed Christ at the center of his life as Lord of his life. Repentance means abandoning all other gods - money, power, other idols - and worshiping one God only, the God of the Holy Bible.
Simply put, a Christian is a disciple of Jesus (Yeshua) the Christ or a follower of Christ Jesus.
To be a "Christian" one must be "born again", which means one must be born of water and of the Holy Spirit. As spoken in the Holy Bible, "Believe and be baptized and you shall be saved, but whoever does not believe shall be condemned." Mark 16:16
Please see John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Christianity is not a religion - it is a way of life.
In my opinion, a Christian is one who believes each of the following:
(1) Both the Immaculate Conception and Holy Resurrection actually happened.
(2) Jesus died on The Cross for everyone's sins.
(3) Jesus is Lord, or He is The Messiah.
The word was first applied to disciples of Jesus in Antioch. Acts 11:26 Whatever else the word means it must include the notion of disciple. So a Christian is not only one who believes in Jesus, but follows him in the sense of embracing him as Savior and seeking his Spirit for strength to be like him.
