In Jesus Christ, co-equal and co-eternal with God the Father, the only Savior of mankind, virgin-born, without sin, his vicarious or substitutionary death on the cross, historical and bodily resurrection from the grave, real and bodily ascension to Heaven and his personal, visible and future return to this earth.
