WHERE IS CHRISTIANITY? Pt. 1

There is a serious argument and war going on among some folks. Some are of the opinion that Christianity is of the heart and has nothing to do with appearance. I will agree to an extent that Christianity is more of the heart than it is of appearance because appearance can be deceptive but saying Christianity is only of the heart and not  about appearance is a misconception.
Hello Readers, welcome to today's important topic. Patiently follow as we look up this important topic that will enrich our soul, follow attentively with an open heart and feel free to air your view based on Biblical points after now.
People who make such claims can even back it up with Romans 10:10 which says; "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation". That's truly God's Word but is that what it really means? Does the Scripture truly say that Christianity is in the heart? Getting born again starts with the heart and the mouth but after that visible changes begins to follow. 

For the purpose of clarifications, let's define Christianity.  Christianity according to the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary is the religion that is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the belief that He is the Son of God. Christianity came from the word Christian and they were first called Christians in Antioch as seen in Acts 11:26 "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch". Why were they called Christians? 
People saw the evidence of the grace of God upon their lives, they behaved like Christ so they were called Christians meaning Christ-like.
