I have always been curious about islam and have only recently been curious about it.
I have a muslim in my workplace and he seems to be one of the better blokes I have ever met honestly and as an aussie that is saying alot.

I don't really want to confide in him or anything like that and I just really wanted to ask is it possible for a christian to convert, I know the religions share the same god and a lot of the doctrines are the same but I really just wanted to ask the people that actually follow it.

Salam/peace,
There is no restriction to adopt islam as their religion. There is no background check etc to do it, not like to get Ausie or US citizenship.
As long as you agree with the basic concept of God (the ones of God) and believe in all God's prophets including prophet Muhammad please be upon them all you. You can consider as muslim. Even if you don't do any special cermony.
Salam/Peace,
Semar
The Prophet said: "Do not eat before you are hungry, and stop eating before you are full"
"1/3 of your stomach for food 1/3 for water, 1/3 for air"

It's between you and Allah,if you say and believe in this-La illaha illAllah Muhammadurrasoolullah" that if you testify that there is no God besides Allah and prophet Muhammad Saw (Pbuh)is his messenger then you will be muslim

Peace be upon you,

You are most welcome to convert anytime. Just go to the nearest masjid/mosque and ask them you want to take shahadah.

Shahadah means to Witness. Its the following words you have to say in front of Muslims or any Muslim at the masjid:

Ash Hadu An La ilaha illAllah Wa Ash Hadu Anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah

I bear witness that None is worthy of Worship except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

By doing so your belief will be what the brother in the above post has mentioned that you believe only God should be worshiped and you believe in all messages brought by all messengers including Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him).
