We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was conceived supernaturally by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (Matt 1.18–25). Mary was a direct descendant of David (Matt 1.1–17;). The Gospels accurately describe the person of Jesus Christ including his teachings and miracles. He was crucified under Pontius Pilate (Mark 15.1–15). Three days later, God raised the very same body from the dead (Mark 16.1–8). Over the subsequent forty days, Jesus appeared bodily, to many including his disciples (Matt 28.9–20; Luke 24.1–49; John 20.10–31; 1 Cor 15.5–8). Following these appearances, Jesus ascended to heaven (Acts 1.9) and the Father placed him at his right hand in the highest of places above every power and dominion, every name of power, in both this present world and the one to come. All things are subject to him including his Church (Acts 2.34–35; Hebrews 1.13; 10.12; Matt 22.44; 1 Pet 3.22).
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ, before his incarnation, existed in the full form of God and willingly laid aside his divine glory, taking on human form as a servant (Phil 2.5–11). Before the incarnation, he was with God and was God (John 1.1–14). Jesus possesses all of the qualities of God, and therefore should be worshipped as God by all of creation (Heb 1.6).
We believe that the incarnation of Jesus was complete. Through it, Jesus possessed all of the essential characteristics of Human nature (Matt 4.2, Luke 2.7, 40, 52; John 4.6).
We believe that in his death on the cross, Jesus Christ reconciled God to humankind appeasing the wrath of God against sinners as a perfect atonement for their sin. Jesus himself became a curse to save us from the curse of the law. The only sin Jesus became was ours and the only righteousness we have is his (Mark 10.45; Rom 1.17; 3.21–5.21; Gal 2.15–5.1; 1 Cor 15.45).
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth again. This return will be personal, corporeal, and visible to all of humankind. It is in this return that the believer hopes and through it God’s purposes of grace towards all humankind will be consummated (Matt 24.44; Mark 8.38; Acts 1.11; Col 3.4; 2 Tim 4.8; Heb 9.28).
