1. Jesus Christ is God's only begotten son

That in itself would make my answer in category 1 above. However, I
also have a relationship with him that began through his taking the
initiative and led to my praying to receive Christ, after which I
received an assurance that he had indeed moved into my life. So more
than belief in facts, it's a relationship.
