The Doctrine Of The Son

The Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God (John 1:1) and fully man (Phil. 2:6-8). We believe that He is one in essence with the Father and the Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4), but different in role. We believe in the virgin birth of Christ (Luke 1:34-37), His sinless life (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15; 1 Pet. 2:22; 1 John 3:5), His substitutional death on the cross for our sins (Eph. 2:16), His burial and resurrection on the third day (Matt. 28:5,6; 1 Cor. 15:4). We believe that Christ ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9-11) and sits at the right hand of God the Father (Acts 2:32,33) in the position of power and authority, from where He shall come again to judge the living and the dead. We believe Christ’s death on the cross atoned for our sin (Rom. 3:25) and satisfied the demands of our righteous and holy God. Jesus is the sacrificial Lamb of God (John 1:29), the Lion of Judah (Rev. 5:5), the Messiah of Israel (Luke 22:67-70; John 10:23-26) the Mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5). He is the Prophet (Acts 3:22), Priest (Heb. 4:14-16), and King (John 1:49); the Head of the Church (Col. 1:18), the Savior (2 Tim. 1:10) and Redeemer of His people (Titus 2:14). He is our Reconciler with God (Col. 1:19-20) the Heir of all things (Heb. 1:1,2), the Judge of all the world (2 Tim. 4:1); and the exact representation of God the Father (Col. 2:9; Heb. 1:3). We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to set up His kingdom (Rev. 22:20). All the Bible points to Christ and our need for Him. History is “His story.” Acts 4:12 says: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6 NKJV)
