1. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is absolute deity, the image of the invisible God. He existed with God the Father in eternity past and came into this world fully human without ceasing to be God. He was begotten of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary (Isa. 7:14; Mat. 1:22-23; Luke 1:26-27, 35; John 1:1-2, 14; Col. 1:15-20).
ISA. 7:14; MATT. 1:22-23; LUKE 1:26-27, 35; JOHN 1:1-2, 14; COL. 1:15-20
2. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ lived as a man yet without sin and voluntarily laid down His life for our sins, the just dying for the unjust, making it possible for men to be saved. All who receive Him and thereby receive His substitutionary sacrifice are declared righteous by God (justified) on the grounds of His shed blood. Our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead
ISA. 53:4-6; ROM. 3:24-25; EPH. 1:7; 1 PET. 1:3-5, 2:24; HEB. 4:14-16
3. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven in His glorified, resurrected body, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He acts as the only true Mediator between God and man fulfilling the ministry of Intercessor and Advocate.
