Jesus
For Christians,
Jesus of
Nazareth,
called Jesus
Christ, is Lord
and Savior.
Orthodoxy and Catholicism: The Nicene Creed

I believe in One God, Father Almighty, Maker of
heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in One Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son
of God, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of
Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created, of
one essence with the Father, through whom all things
were made.
For us and for our salvation He came down from
heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the
Virgin Mary and became Man. He was crucified for us
under Pontius Pilate, and He suffered and was buried.
On the third day He rose according to the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand
of the Father.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and
the dead. His kingdom will have no end. And in the
Holy Spirit, the Lord, Giver of Life, who proceeds
from the Father, who together with the Father and the
Son is worshipped and glorified, who spoke through
the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I
acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I expect the resurrection of the dead; and the life of the
age to come.
Amen."

The Lutheran Church

“We believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is
our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him
we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and
salvation. We confess that “our works cannot
reconcile God or merit forgiveness of sins and grace,
but that we obtain forgiveness and grace only by
faith when we believe that we are received into favor
for Christ’s sake, who alone has been ordained to be
the mediator and propitiation through whom the
Father is reconciled” (AC, XX, 9).

24.) God remembered his promise to reconcile the world to himself; he
has come among us in Jesus Christ, the eternal Word made flesh. He is
the long awaited Savior, fully human and fully divine, conceived by the
Spirit of God and Born of the Virgin Mary.
27.) As our substitute he suffered all his years on earth, especially in the
horrible torture of the cross. He carried God’s judgment on our sin; his
sacrifice removes our guilt. He walked out of the grave, the Lord of life!
He conquered sin and death. We are set right with God, we are given new
life, and called to walk with him in freedom from sin’s dominion.

The Methodist Church

We hold in common with all Christians a faith in the mystery
of salvation in and through Jesus Christ. At the heart of the
gospel of salvation is God’s incarnation in Jesus of Nazareth.
Scripture witnesses to the redeeming love of God in Jesus’
life and teachings, his atoning death, his resurrection, his
sovereign presence in history, his triumph over the powers of
evil and death and his promised return. Because God truly
loves us in spite of our willful sin, God judges us, summons
us to repentance, pardons us, receives us by that grace given
to us in Jesus Christ, and gives us hope of life eternal.”

The Pentecostal Church

Jesus is the son of God according to the flesh and the very
God Himself according to the Spirit. Jesus is the Christ; the
creator of all things; God with us; God made flesh; God
manifested in the flesh; He which was, which is, and which is
to come, the Almighty; the mighty God, everlasting Father,
and Prince of peace…It took shedding of blood for the
remission of the sins of the world, but God the Father was a
Spirit and had no blood to shed. Thus he prepared a body of
flesh and blood and came to earth as a man in order to save
us…”
