a. I believe there is a link between Christ’s eternity and deity. Jesus will always be God and even in his human form he was always God. In John 10:30 it say “I and the Father are one.” Which meant that when Christ became man, he was still one with his father. Jesus was fully God and fully human (John 1:14).
II. The Humanity of Christ
a. I believe that Jesus Christ is fully man. I believe that God became man in the incarnation (1 Timothy 3:16). The joining between the divinity and humanity did nothing to alter the essential nature of the Godhead.

I believe that after the crucifixion of Christ, he was raised on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

The resurrection was validating that Jesus was truly the Son of God (John 14:6).
IX. The Ascension and Exaltation of Christ
a. I believe after Christ was raised, he ascended into heaven (Luke 24:50-51). When Jesus ascended, he went to his exalted throne and ruled over all creation, every nation, and the Church. He sent his spirit for the Church to have life and power through the Spirit until Jesus returns (Acts 2:33). Jesus was seated at the right hand of the Father in confirmation of the Davidic hope. Psalms 110:1 and Acts 2:34-35 states, “The Lord says to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”
X. The Return of Christ
a. I believe that one day Jesus will come to bring his kingdom and rule over the Church as king (Acts 1:10-11). He will return suddenly and with a glorified body (Revelation 19:17). At this time Satan and his followers, both living and dead will be judged (Revelations 20:7-15) and Jesus will establish his kingdom (Revelations
