2 b. Jesus Christ (God the Son)

Michael Engbers Beliefs

We believe in Jesus Christ, God who came in human form (Jn. 1:14), was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin (Lk. 1:31-35; Matt. 1:20, 21), God’s gift to all people, to be our prophet, priest and king.

Prophet: Christ is the complete revelation of the character of God faithfully declaring the Father’s will in word and in deed. (Heb. 10:5-7; Mk. 9:1-7; Luke 1:35; Heb. 1:3; 2 Cor. 4:4; Col. 1:19)

Priest: Christ offered His perfect life as a complete sacrifice for each person’s sin. After He rose from the dead, He ascended into heaven where he intercedes for His people. (Rom. 3:21-26; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Heb. 7:23-28; Heb. 10:10)

King: Jesus Christ is our Lord and we submit to Him in all things, according to His Word, and the leading of His Spirit. (Phil. 2:5-11; Matt. 7:21-23; Luke 8:23-37; Rev. 7:14)
