We believe in Jesus Christ as the eternal Son of God. The Son is from eternity the only begotten of the Father. Being conceived of the Holy Spirit, He was born man of the virgin Mary (Jn. 3:16; Heb. 1:5-10; Luke 1:35; Matt. 1:18-25), in order to fulfill the purpose of God from the foundation of the world to redeem us from the eternal curse and bring about our eternal salvation by making full atonement for our sins through His vicarious suffering and death on the cross of Calvary (Jn. 1:14,29; Mark 10:45; Heb. 10:10-14; 1 Pet. 1:18-29; Is. 53:4-6). He took upon Himself the likeness of sinful flesh (Heb. 2:14), thus being true God and also perfect man (1 Jn. 3:5; 1 Tim. 2:5), being made in all things like as we are, yet without sin (Heb. 4:15).
He rose triumphantly from the grave the third day and ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of God interceding in our behalf; from whence He shall come again in visible form to judge the living and the dead and to establish His rule as Lord of lords and King of kings (John 20 and 21; Acts 1:9-11; 2 Tim. 4:1; 1 Tim. 6:15; Jn. 5:22-29; Matt. 25:31ff).
