    In Romans 10:9, I see a necessary and sufficient condition to be a Christian. ”That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

                    An important point. In developing the current ASA statement of faith we wanted
            to make the organization open to a fairly broad range of Christians across the
            ecumenical spectrum (while recognizing the historical reality that it will probably
            remain predominantly Evangelical), but were not trying to state necessary and
            sufficient conditions for faith to be Christian.
