"Christian" is not an ethnic or national name

The first Christians were Jews. You can read about them in Acts 2. They were members of the nation of Israel who believed in Jesus and decided to commit their lives to following Him. The first disciples of Jesus called "Christians" were in a Syrian city called Antioch. You can read about them in Acts 11. Acts 11:26 says, "And they were first called Christians in Antioch." Many of these Christians were Syrians, not Jews. Not all Jews were Christians, and not all Syrians were Christians, but only those who committed their lives to Jesus Christ. That is the same in America today. Only those Americans that have committed their lives to being disciples of Christ are true Christians.
