What We Beleive

 

Who Jesus Is
Jesus Christ—The Person and work of Jesus Christ is summed up in a Name given to Him before birth: “Immanuel,” which means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). As God, He has “life in himself,” with neither beginning nor ending, eternally the same, with all power and authority over heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18). Revealed to us as God’s Son, He is eternally everything the Father is, without exception or limitation. Dr. Albert B. Simpson, founder of The Christian and Missionary Alliance, summarized “God with us” as Christ our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.
Savior
Jesus said of Himself: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John14:6). This was verified by the miracles Jesus did, the perfect life He lived, and the historically accurate record of His Resurrection. Jesus said, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves (John 14:11). Jesus is the only way to know God: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Sanctifier
Sanctification is a crisis and a process. The sanctified life usually begins when the believer, struggling to meet God’s expectiations, realizes there is no way he can do it alone: “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 7:24). At last, God can live in the heart of the new believer through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Healer
The decision to follow Jesus affects every aspect of life, including physical health. Christ is our Healer: “I am the Lord who heals you” (Exodus 15:26). During Jesus’ years on earth, He healed many people when “. . . all who touched him were healed” (Matthew 14:36). The power to heal in Jesus’ Name was passed on to His followers. The first recorded miracle after Pentecost was the healing of a paralytic by Peter, who said, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk”(Acts 3:6). Christ continues to heal the sick because He is the same “yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

Coming King
Christ is coming again. His life on earth concluded with an event His disciples witnessed “He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight” (Acts 1:9). As the disciples stared at the sky, “suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. ‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven’” (Acts 1:10–11). For now, Christ is with the Father. But He will come again. When will that happen? No one knows. In the meantime, we are to tell others about Jesus: “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
