What is a Christian?

A Christian is a person who has believed the message of the gospel and put their trust in Jesus Christ. Christians are not perfect people who have done all the right things. They are not people who have measured up to some sort religious standard or kept all the rules or even done a good job at trying to keep them. Rather a Christian is someone who admits that they haven’t measured up and are in need of God’s mercy and forgiveness. A Christian is a person who has turned to Jesus and put their trust in him and what he has done in order that they might be forgiven and have life.
