Yes! identity is the main question. If Muslims become truly converted to christian faith, they should belong to the christian family, to the church, the body of Christ. Of course we are created to reflect the Triune God in relationship with Himself and with others socially, culturally and traditionally. But, it comes to the identity of Christ it should be taken seriously. we can not be called with other names, there should be any thing in addition christianity to belong to Jesus Christ and follow him within the christian community.
