24 for he (Cornelius) was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith; and much people was added unto the Lord. 25 And he went forth to Tarsus to seek for Saul; 26 and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that even for a whole year they were gathered together with the church, and taught much people; and that the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
1 Pet 4:16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.
Why should I be a Christian?

•Because of my family responsibility: Deut 6:4-9
•Because of the value of my soul: Mt 20:28, Mt 26:28, Heb 2:9
•Because it is the only way to Heaven: Acts 4:12
