What is a Christian?

Simply put, a Christian is a follower of Christ. Jesus never said “Go to church every week”. Jesus never said to just follow the rules and live a good life. No, he said “follow me.” In fact he said “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” We are to turn from our own ways and surrender our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.

A Christian is simply one who has recognized his/her own sinfulness, accepts that God sent His Son to take the penalty of sin, and surrenders his/her life to the Lord. In doing so, he becomes a “new creation” and one of God’s children.
