What makes a Christian

How do you answer what makes someone a Christian? Is it more about the creed or the church that teaches it?
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor 2:6)

I would define Christian as someone who believes that Jesus Christ is God.
Will we all have to prove our Orthodoxy by adopting St Nicholas avatars now?
