JESUS CHRIST

The second person of the Trinity, the Son of God, entered into creation by the miracle of the virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:18-23). Through the incarnation, Christ took upon a human nature thus becoming 100% God and 100% man (Jn. 1:14, Col. 1:19, 2:9).  While here on earth, Jesus was sinless and obeyed every single one of the Father's commands in perfect obedience even to the point of being crucified (Phil 2:5-11).  Jesus Christ died a substitutionary death, dying in our place and paying our sin debt, thus reconciling those who trust in the Gospel, to God (2 Cor. 5:19-21, Col. 1:20, 1 Pet. 3:18).  After being buried, he rose on the third day in a bodily resurrection and after a period of time, he ascended into glory and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Acts. 1:9, Acts. 2:22-24, Heb. 1:1-3).  Jesus Christ is Lord over all and will return bodily, visibly, and in power and glory, to judge both the living and the dead, and consummate the next age (Matt. 24:30-31,1 Thess. 4:14-18, 1 Tim. 6:13-16, 1 Jn. 2:28).
