Doctrines on God and Jesus

As a Christian, it is vital that we understand God and Jesus. It’s important to get this right, for this is the foundation of everything else. If we miss the boat on this doctrine, everything else crumbles.

Let’s examine who God is, and who Jesus is. As a nontrinitarian Christian, here is my belief on these doctrines. Everything here is from sacred Scripture. Nothing is derived from any outside source.
