We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of
the world1. He was crucified, died, and was buried, that through death he might
destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil2. For this purpose
the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil3.
As Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, the Son of man
was three days and three nights in the heart of the earth4. He rose again the
third day according to the Scriptures5, and is seated at the right hand of God6,
making intercession for us7. He has gone to prepare a place for us, and will
come again, and receive us unto Himself8.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but
by Him9. To as many as receive Him, to them gives He power to become the sons
of God, to them that believe on His name, who are born, not of blood, nor of
the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God10.
Jesus is the head over all things to the church, which is His body, the
fulness of Him that filleth all in all11.
