Who Is Jesus?

In a world in which information is readily available and opinions abound, this fundamental question stands above all other inquiries and considerations. We believe Jesus is true God and true man in one person. He is the Son of God who was crucified and raised from the dead for the salvation of all trust in Him.

Christ is not His last name but identifies Him as the Messiah. Christ is the Greek translation of Messiah, who is the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises that God would save His people. This fulfillment and salvation happened in history. Our calendars divide time into two large time periods: BC, meaning “before the time of Christ,” and AD, a Latin term that means “in the year of our Lord.” Jesus lived in real time and in a real place (first century AD in Israel) through a flesh-and-blood person named Jesus.

The Bible is the true and trustworthy Word of God that records God’s love for the world through His Son Jesus. The miracles recorded in the Gospels and the teachings of Jesus are true and accurate.

Jesus physically died on a cross and physically rose from the grave on the third day. He physically ascended into heaven, and He will return a second time when He will judge all people. Those who trust in Jesus as Savior will rise to eternal life.
