What is a Christian?


You could look in a dictionary to find an official answer to this question – the Oxford English Dictionary defines a Christian as:

   1. A person who has received Christian Baptism;
   2. An adherent of Christ’s teaching.

Whilst there’s nothing wrong with these definitions they don’t really capture the full depth of what Christianity is all about. Being a Christian is all about relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the relationships we find with other Christians because of that.
