Do Jehovah's Witnesses Believe in Jesus?

Yes. Jehovah's Witnesses very much do believe in Jesus. Jehovah's Witnesses try to follow closely the
teachings and behavior of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:21)

Jehovah's Witnesses teach that no salvation occurs without Christ (Acts 4:12), that accepting Christ's sacrifice is a requirement for true worship, that every prayer must acknowledge Christ, that Christ is the King of God's Kingdom, that Christ is the head of the Christian congregation, that Christ is immortal and above every creature, even that Christ was the 'master worker' in creating the universe.

And when people become Jehovah’s Witnesses, they are baptized in the name of Jesus.—Matthew 28:18, 19.

Why Do Some Say That Jehovah's Witnesses Are Not Christians?

Many falsely claim that Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in Jesus. They may do this due to a misunderstanding or because they wish to depict Jehovah's Witnesses in a bad light.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe in what the Bible says and what Jesus himself claimed...that Jesus is the SON OF God. Jesus is God's "only-begotten" son...the only being directly created by God. (John 1:18)

Jesus is "the beginning of the creation of God." (Rev. 3:14)

He is the "firstborn of all creation". (Col. 1:15)

Even though Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that Jesus is God Himself, this does not mean that they don't believe in Jesus! They believe that he is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. In fact, he is the second most important person in the Universe next to God Himself.
