01 - What Is A Christian?
April 3, 2022 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann
What it means to be a Christian has changed over the years. Many people think that going to church on occasion or simply believing in God makes them a Christian. But the Bible presents a different perspective on what a Christian is and a different definition for what it means to be a Christian. To God’s way of thinking, any person bearing the name Christian is expected to live up to the lofty standards of that name set by Christ himself. It isn’t question about identity. It’s a question about affiliation. A good name means a good reputation. It signifies a good character. If we affiliate ourselves with Christ—and adopt his name as our own—it is incumbent upon us, then, to honor it by how conduct ourselves in the eyes of a watching world.
