What/Who is a Christian?

"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..
