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.
Joe married his godparent's daughter and now all their children have turned out to be Monophysites. Don't be like Joe. #spiritualincest

At nunc desertis cessant sacraria lucis:
aurum omnes victa iam pietate colunt.
-Propertius, Elegies III.XIII:47-48

Ἀπ' ὃσα ἒκαμα κι ἀπ’ ὃσα εἶπα
νὰ μὴ ζητήσουνε νὰ βροῦν ποιός ἢμουν
-C.P Cavafy
