Jesus Christ, Savior of the World

We put our trust in the redeeming work of Christ and claim him as the Savior of the world.  In the “fullness of time,” at the time of God’s own choosing, God sent his Son to live among us and bear his Word to the world. In his life and teaching, Jesus proclaimed his Father’s will and grace. He founded a community of followers, which we call the church. By his death on the cross he showed his love with us and for us. By his resurrection from the grave he opened up a new life for himself and for all who believed in him. More than a prophet and religious teacher, he is God’s Word in human flesh. He is “the way, the truth, and the life” for us and for all who believe. He is our Savior and our Lord, our life and our hope.
