What does it mean to be a Christian?

From “Being a More Christian Christian,” Ensign, Nov. 2012, 90–92.


Robert D. Hales
The members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are special witnesses of Jesus Christ.

The word Christian means taking upon us the name of Christ. We do this by being baptized and receiving the Holy Ghost.

A Christian has faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

A Christian believes that through the grace of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, we can repent.

When we follow Jesus Christ, we become who Heavenly Father wants us to be.
