Basically to believe in Christ,the values of Christianity & the 10 commandments.
The word means " Christ Like"
As believers we can try to be like Christ and obey His commandments.
We believe Christ came and died for our sins and was raised back to life after 3 days.
We believe He will return one day and we have the promise of eternal life
My way of sharing His message is:
"Show people Christ and if you have to.... Use words".
Actions speak louder than words.
A "Christian" is a "disciple" of Jesus Christ, who's desire it is to know and to stay close to his principles and teachings. And who takes seriously the issue of following their master's commands.
“Christ suffered for you, leaving a model for you to follow his steps closely.”- 1 Peter 2:21
"I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one
another; just as I have loved you, you also love one another."- John 13:34
“Which commandment is first of all?” “The first is...Jehovah our God is one Jehovah, and you must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind and with your whole strength."- Mark 12:28-30
"If you observe my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have observed the commandments of the Father and remain in his love."- John 15:10
"Father, I want those whom you have given me to be with me where I am, in order that they may look upon my glory that you have given me, because you loved me before the founding of the world. Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you, but I know you, and these have come to know that you sent me. I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them."- John 17:24-26
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus."- 1 Timothy 2:5
Depends upon the "Church Doctrine" you adhere to.
That and what you PERSONALLY consider "Real Christian", based on your earlier indoctrination in this belief system.
