Incarnational Union soteriology conveys the holy work of our savior, Jesus Christ, through him becoming human to save the world from sin. God the Father begot the Son and then sent him to save the Lord 's people from themselves. The glorious Son had to become human, so that all humans could become God and be in eternal Union with the Trinity. He also had to die for our sins to show obedience to God, thus setting an example for all.
