I think there are 2 basic requirements to being a Christian:
1. You must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (basically meaning, accept that he is divine and died for our sins)
2. Accept the Bible as the word of God, and use it in some way to guide yourself (however, interpretation of the Bible can vary by denomination or individual)
That is a peculiarly 20th century American definition of Christianity that who be unrecognizable to most Christians throughout history. The phrase "Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour" is almost exclusively used by American Evangelicals.
