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.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

That is the land of lost content,          
  I see it shining plain,   
The happy highways where I went   
  And cannot come again.
