What is a Christian?


A true Christian is a person who has put faith and trust in the person and work of Jesus Christ, including His death on the cross as payment for sins and His resurrection on the third day. 

John 1:12 tells us, “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

The mark of a true Christian is love for others and obedience to God’s Word (1 John 2:4, 10).

A true Christian is indeed a child of God, a part of God’s true family, and one who has been given new life in Jesus Christ.
