Article V – God, the Son

We believe Jesus the Christ to be the only begotten son of God.1  He was and is the Word of God and was one with the Father from the beginning.2  Through Him were all things made that were made.3  He being one with the Father from the beginning became flesh through Mary the virgin.4  As man, He walked this earth without sin, perfect in all ways.5  During His life, He demonstrated the nature, divinity and love of the Father.6  Through His sinless life, His death on the cross, His burial and His resurrection He accomplished the redemption of all that will believe on His name.7  He is now seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven until the time of His return.8
