Overview

“What does it mean to be a Christian?” is an e-book written from a biblical point of view on what does it mean to be a Christian. To be a Christian means to follow Christ, to desire Him, to fellowship with Him, to be indwelt by Him, and to bring glory to Him in your life. Being, a Christian means that you are changed on the inside, not controlled from the outside. It means that your heart has been changed by the presence of God’s spirit. Because the person has been changed from the inside he/she does not desire to do those things that are contrary to God. In actuality being a Christian means that you have encountered the true and living God and that you have undergone a change in your heart and soul.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. The foundation of Christianity is based upon how one individual treats his fellowman and the love that encompasses that relationship.
Every person who receives Jesus Christ and becomes a Christian is assured of Christ's spiritual presence and empowering.

He continues to uphold justice and freedom by sharing his experiences with audiences everywhere. His first book “The Scars of Racism” has made a stunning and positive impact on people of all races.
In April 2011, Dr. Handy was appointed Presiding Bishop of the Louisiana Conference from Fellowship of Christ International; his appointment was accredited to his many years of dedicated service to God, service to humanity, and ministry. His district covers the entire state of Louisiana.
