Creed: On Jesus Christ

Updated on January 30, 2012


Have you ever attempted to sit down and write out your beliefs about Jesus? It can be a daunting task! There is much to think about and consider, but it can be a very beneficial exercise in helping you find out what you actually believe. This is my attempt to describe by beliefs in JESUS CHRIST as per what I currently understand. I could have a new revelation tomorrow that would cause me to add, remove, or edit a word or two, but right now, this is what I understand to be true. To read my Creed on the Holy Spirit CLICK HERE. To read my Creed on God CLICK HERE.






Matthew 1:1, 16; Luke 2:12; Matt. 2:11; Luke 2:43; Matt. 8:27; Mark 2:7; Matt. 26:12; Hebrews 10:10; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 4:2; Mark 11:12; Luke 7:34; John 4:6; John 4:7; Matt. 11:19; Matt. 11:19; John 11:35; Col 1:15; Luke 2:40; Mat. 4:1; Hebrews 5:8; Luke 23:46

I believe that Jesus was fully human. Born of a woman, He was created in the image of God and was called the “Son of Man.” He shared in the limitations of his brothers, as he was a fragile infant and a young boy before He was a man. He grew in wisdom and stature and had to learn obedience. He had a physical body and was hungry, thirsty, ate food, and drank. He became tired and wept. He was tempted and he died.



Matt. 12:25; Matt. 27:18; Eph. 3:30; Col. 2:10; Heb. 1:8-12; Heb. 13:8; Matt. 18:20; Rom. 8:10; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-3; Rev. 1:8; Rev. 4:11; John 1:10; 1 Cor. 8:6; Heb. 3:3-4; 1 Chr. 16:33; Rev. 20:12; Matt. 7:22-23; Matt. 25: 31-33; John 14:1-6; Matt. 11:27; Matt. 16:16; Luke 2:11; Luke 3:4-6; Phil. 2:11; John 20:28; Hebrews 1:8; Matt 1:21, Acts 4:12; Heb 2:10; Luke 2:11; Col 1:15; John 1:41; Hebrews 4:14; Hebrews 6:20; Matt. 13:57; Matt. 21:11; Matt. 27:11; Matt. 27:37; Luke 24:1-3; Acts 1:22

I believe that Jesus is fully God. He is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent (in His divine nature), and immutable. Jesus is eternal and is the creator and sustainer of all things. He is the rightful judge of humankind and also their Savior. He is the image of the invisible God and the Messiah. He is called “Son of God,” “Lord,” and “the Christ.” He is King and demonstrated His deity and power by His resurrection. He will return again and every knee shall bow and recognize His Kingship when He establishes His Kingdom upon the Earth.



Matt. 3:11; John 15:26; Romans 8:9; Gal. 4::6; Heb. 2:17; 1 John 2:2; Rom. 3:25; Gal. 3:13; Rom. 3:24; Col 1:14; Eph. 5:2; Rom. 5:11; Rom. 4:25; Rom. 5:15; 2 Cor. 3:9; Isaiah 53:11; Hebrews 2:17; Rom. 3:25; Rom. 5:6; 2 Cor. 5:19-20; Col. 1:18-20; Heb. 8:9-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Col 2:15; 1 Cor. 15:24-28; John 12:31; 1 John 3:8; 1 Peter 2:21; John 15:13; 1 Peter 2:11; Luke 18:31; John 18:32; Heb. 12:24; Heb. 13:20; Rev. 1:5; Gal. 3:14; Rom. 5:17; Rom. 8:2;

I believe that as by one man, Adam, we were all counted guilty, by one man, also, Jesus Christ, are we counted as righteous. Christ fulfilled the prophecies in Scripture by His life and death, and the Davidic covenant by His own blood. We are justified by faith in Jesus, as His righteousness is both credited to us and infused into us. His blood sacrifice atoned for our sins and appeased the wrath of God so that justice could be rightly administered. He became our substitute and took the punishment of death that we deserved. Christ paid the ransom and set us free from the wages of sin, which is death; Christ conquered death for Him and for us. He released us from the bondage of Satan, as He set the prisoners free. We are free to be obedient to Christ. Through his death and resurrection, we are reconciled to God and our relationship and oneness with God has been restored; our lives have been redeemed. He is the first born of a new creation and by His work we are born again—but not born of woman but of the Spirit of God. He provides a moral example for us to follow, as He represents the ideal of what humanity should be like. His coming to earth, living a perfect life, dying on the cross, and resurrection made a way for Him to send the Holy Spirit—that God would dwell not only with humankind but in them.



Matt. 2:1-2; Matt. 8:2; Matt. 15:25; Mark 5:6; John 9:35-38; Heb. 1:6; Rev. 5:8-14; Rev. 15:3-4; Matt. 22:37; John 8:42; John 14:15; Matt. 19:19; John 14:23; John 21:15; Eph. 6:6; Phil. 3:10; Matt. 21:32; Mark 5:36; Rom. 8:29; 2 Cor. 5:20; Matt. 10:1; 2 Cor. 13:10; Gen. 15:6; Mark 16:14; Mark 16:17; John 1:12; John 3:15.

I believe that Jesus Christ is worthy of worship and praise. He should be adored, loved, and obeyed. He is good and kind-hearted towards His sheep. He is mighty on the field and tender in the fold. In response to His love, we should love others. In response to His forgiveness and grace, we should also forgive others. We are called to be like Him—to have the mind of Christ and to walk as He walked—to be conformed into His image. We are to believe in His name, in His promises, and that we are who He says we are in Him—thereby we are to exercise the authority that He has given us to co-labor with Him in His work.

      @Jackie Lynnley: I supposed it depends on which school they go to but public--nope. This actually came out of an assignment I had to do for school--Theology. :-)

      @ Vladimir: Thank you! I've been so busy writing for work that I haven't published anything on Hub pages for a while--but writing here on topics that I really care about is my favorite kind of writing to do. Our Lord is awesome--I SOOOO agree! Blessings to you!

      @ gmaoli: Thank you! There is so much to say, but I was trying to capture the essence of Jesus in a "nutshell"--although He can't really be fully captured in such a way. I remember when I first realized the humanity of Jesus--and I felt like I had a friend--an elder brother who truly understood what it is like to be in the flesh. Thanks for your comment!

      I was really impressed with how you broke down the scriptures into the significant theme messages that come from them. The one about Jesus being fully human really got my many us tend to forget that, which I think might hurt us to fully understand how Jesus wanted us to live as people among each other.

      This brings me to the Apostles Creed which professes my belief. Godspeed SNF and Dave.

      @ Dave Mathews: Thanks for the comment! How could I have forgotten to include the return of Christ. :-) Thank you for reminding me of this ever present reality that I live with. I guess I was so focused on "was" and "is" I thought I was done before I got to "what will be." I'm so glad you brought this to my attention--now I can go back and edit. Thank you!

      Seek dear sister: I cry out AMEN! to what you have written here, and I could add so very much more.

      As written in the Book of REVELATION as Recorded by The Apostle John the beloved, that on a day unknown to any man, God our Father will dspatch His Son Jesus, who will call to himself firstly all the dead souls who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, Jesus will then call to himself, all those living on earth who also believe in Him, reportedly 1/3 of all of humanity on earth. I believe that after 7 years of trials and tribulations Jesus will give a final calling to any of the remaining souls who would choose to follow Him, and for those who refuse, the end will be swift as satan, and the anti-christ, and the false prophets and those humans who deny Jesus will be hurled into the "Lake of Fire" There to remain for all of eternity, exiled separated from God and from heaven.
