  • Jesus Christ is the only Son of God.  Born of a virgin, as man He lived a sinless life, voluntarily sacrificed His life and shed His blood to pay the penalty of sin.  He was resurrected from the dead, ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father.  He will return in power and glory.  (Matthew 1:18,25, Hebrews 4:15, 9:27-28, 1 Cor 15:1-8, Acts 1:9-11)
