What does it really mean to be a Christian? In this study, Alistair Begg identifies the essential elements of the believer’s life, starting with conversion and then elaborating on how believers are to act out their faith. “To be a Christian,” he says, “is to declare that Jesus is Lord. His Lordship affects both our minds, teaching us what to believe, and our morals, changing the way we live.” While each follower of Christ is uniquely called, all Christians share the same fixed features of genuine faith.

The basic nature of the truths unpacked in this series should not be mistaken for elementariness. These realities aren’t relevant to recent converts alone, but form the core of each stage of the believer’s life and apply equally to all Christians. Young believers and weathered saints alike will find Alistair’s examination of the “main things” of the faith a useful and challenging way of assessing their experience.
