The word 'Christian' is the name given to those people who accept, believe in, and follow and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ. The primary belief is that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to the world in order to die as an Atonement for the sins of mankind. 'Christ' is derived from the Greek word 'Khristos', which means 'anointed', or 'the anointed one'. Thus, Jesus Christ really means Jesus the Anointed One, because He was anointed by the Holy Spirit of God without measure. The followers of Jesus Christ were first called Christians during the First Century in the ancient town of Antioch, which was located in what is now a part of southern coastal Turkey: "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." Acts 11:26, KJV
