Jesus Christ

2 Corinthians 4:13 – “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written (Ps 116:10), I believe, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe and therefore speak…..”

We believe that Jesus Christ existed in eternity past as the Word and is the only begotten Son of God the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary in the fullness of time (approx. 2000 years ago). He was crucified upon a cross, buried in a tomb and rose again on the third day, He ascended to Heaven, where He sits at the right hand of God the Father in resurrection glory, making intercession for us as our Great High Priest and Advocate. He has been given a Name above every other name, and all power in Heaven and earth and under the earth (John 1:1, 14; John 14; 6; 1 Corinthians 15:3 - 4).

All things were created by Him and for Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.  Jesus Christ is before all things, and by Him all this consist (Colossians 1:17).  He has been highly exalted and given a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every knee tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Isaiah 45:3; Psalm 138:2; Philippians 2:9 - 11).

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, is God and He is referred to numerous times in the scripture as such.  This is a great mystery as declared by Paul the apostle to Timothy (1 Tim 3:16).  The Old Testament is also very clear in declaring the Son to be God (Isaiah 6:14; Matthew 1:23; Isaiah 9:6).  Many other scriptures repeatedly declare the Son to be God (Hebrews 1: 8; John 1:18; 20:28; Phil 2:6).  Jesus referred to himself as the I am (John 8:58), which is a name used by God himself to Moses declaring that he is the only true and living God (Exodus 3:14).  Jesus told his disciples to go into all the world and baptize in the name of The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost.  Bear in mind what 1 John 5:7 says about the Son.  He calls him the WORD.  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  And the Word was made flesh…..” (John 1:1, 14).

The only way you can have eternal life is by getting to know Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. The scripture declares that this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son (John 17:3; 3 John 9).  Jesus himself stated, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Jesus Christ is the Rock of our Salvation, and He stated that on this Rock He would build His church, and the gates of hell would not prevail against it.  Paul the apostle declared in the scripture, for other foundation can no man lay that is laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11).

Jesus Christ is not only the Head of the church, which is His body, but also the Apostle and High Priest of our profession.  He is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.  All things have been put under His feet (Ephesians 1:22; Hebrews 3:1; 1 Peter 3:22).

Once the Lord Jesus has completed the Father’s plan, then the end will come, when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all (1 Corinthians 15:24 - 28).
