A Christian is a committed follower of Jesus Christ. It does not mean that person is now perfect and no longer sins. It means when they stumble, they get back up, repent of their sin, and purposefully follow the teachings of Christ.
You must believe Christ is the Son of God and paid that price for you.
Matthew 3:17 Romans 5:8
Christ was sinless and the only worthy sacrifice for our sins. He chose to lay down His life so that we have a path to eternal life.
You must repent of sin and confess Jesus Christ is Lord
Verses about repentance Romans 10:9-10
Repentance is action. It is agreeing with God that sin is wrong and actively choosing to turn from that sin. To confess Christ is to tell others that you believe and choose to make Jesus Christ Lord of your life.
