Jesus Christ is the Son of God, only by faith in Him can one be reconciled unto God. Born of a virgin 100% God and 100% man.

Mankind, due to the fall are by nature born sinners, but that because "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him Should not perish but have everlasting life," that those who believe and put their trust in the sacrifice of Christ as their Lord and Savior are declared righteous in the sight of God and can rejoice forever in the presence of God.
