Becoming and Being a Christian

Introduction

        The choice to become a Christian is one involving a long-term commitment. Any unbalanced or incomplete approach will fail to achieve success. The nature of the commitment is, therefore, a vital concern.

        Consider the progression toward union with Jesus and how this influences everything that follows.
