Christians See also Disciple; Saint A name given to believers in Jesus Christ. Although this term is commonly used throughout the world, the Lord has designated true followers of Christ as Saints (Acts 9:13, 32, 41; 1 Cor. 1:2; D&C 115:4). The disciples were called Christians, Acts 11:26. If any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, 1 Pet. 4:16. Because of the covenant ye shall be called the children of Christ, Mosiah 5:7. True believers were called Christians by those who were not members of the Church, Alma 46:13–16.
