"Christians" is used three times in New Testament (Acts 11:26; Acts 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16). Followers of Jesus Christ were first called "Christians" in Antioch (Acts 11:26) for me.. based on the Bible Christian is someone who has been born-again by God (John 3:3; John 3:7; 1 Peter 1:23) and has put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. A true Christian is someone who has repented of his or her sin and put faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone. Their trust is not in following a religion or a set of moral codes, or a list of do’s and don’ts. The mark of a true Christian is love for others and obedience to God’s Word (1 John 2:4; 1 John 2:10). what do you think?? their will be a lot of people be excluded.. if you base it on the Bible..

..^_^ its in the Bible.. the Apostles of Christ where first called Christian in Antioch (Acts 11:26). It is used by the unsaved people in Antioch to make fun of Christians... it is literally means "belonging to the party of Christ".. if you said a believers of God only.. its too broad, General, Universal.. in regards on what you have said.. All that Enters the Garage are All Cars..

Christians are followers of Christ, they are those who accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and have decided to lead their life anew in Jesus and Yes, you are very right in everything you stated. God bless!
