Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ is the one and only begotten son of God. Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus’ name means ‘Savior’ and Christ means, “the Anointed One.” There is no way to heaven except by Him (John 14:6). Jesus will return soon.
What do we believe?
The scripture makes it plain that, “this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”
(1 John 5:11-12).
- We believe that Jesus laid aside his divine nature and operated as a man on this earth, with the assistance of the Holy Spirit. He was often referred to as the Son of man (Luke 22:48, Luke 22:69, Luke 24:7). He performed no documented miracles in scripture, prior to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:21-22). Any reference to miracles prior to 30 years old are referenced in Gnostic Gospels and/or writings that are outside the Canon of Scripture which are neither inerrant nor inspired by God. We believe the resurgence of these texts to be an attack on the Holy Scriptures and the character of Christ.
- We believe in the incarnation of Christ through the virgin birth, which we hold without question, as written in the Word of God (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 2:26-35). We believe He was a perfect, sinless human being in whom dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9), that He was very God and perfect man. We believe He lived a sinless life and died upon the cross as an all-sufficient atonement for our sins, for our personal transgressions and also for original sin.
- We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ, in His triumphant ascension into heaven, and that He (in His glorified body, as a complete human being, with all things appertaining to the perfections of man’s nature) now sits at the right hand of heaven’s Majesty until He shall return to judge the world at the last day. Perfect, sinless humanity is at the heart of the moral universe, participating in the government of creation and interceding for His saints, until He shall come to judge the living and the dead in the end of the age (Luke 24:1-7; Romans 1:4; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19).
And remember, Jesus is bigger than any problem you have!
