The Holy Apostle Paul made it abundantly clear that the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is the foundation of the Christian faith when he wrote to the Corinthians: “And if Christ is not risen, then is our preaching is empty, and your faith is also empty” (1 Cor. 15:14). It would be fair to say then that one who does not believe in the bodily Resurrection of Christ cannot be called a Christian.
