The Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, uniting in Himself his divine nature and his human nature without mixture or change of either nature. He is God of God, the only begotten Son of the Father, though not made or created. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary while she was a virgin. Though fully human in nature, with all its properties and weaknesses, He did not have humanity’s sinful nature and was entirely without sin in His birth, life, death, and resurrection.

He lived perfectly under the Law of God and taught truthfully about God in order to fulfill all righteousness. On the cross he died for the sins of His people, shedding His precious blood, bearing God’s wrath and being punished for their sins. On the third day, He rose from the dead in fulfillment of the Scriptures and as vindication of His life and ministry. In His resurrected body He ascended into heaven. Now He is exalted as Lord of all and intercedes for His people in the presence of the Father. He is the source of all Life, the sustainer of all Creation, in Whom dwells all wisdom and knowledge.

The only way that anyone can come to God the Father is through Jesus Christ His Son.
