The basis of Christianity is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without these there would be no Christian faith.

A person is a Christian because they believe that Christ died as a sacrifice for the sin of mankind and believing they have eternal life.

1John 5:11-13 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
