I'm sorry but I didn't see what your church believes in the hypstatic union of Christ.  Was he always divine and human while on earth?  (For example, The Jehovah's Witnesses say Jesus was not human after his resurrection, only a spirit.)  Also, what does your church believe about the Holy Spirit...like, is the Holy Spirit a "He" or an "it". Most other churches list these types of things in their belief pages.
Thanks.

Previous statements from Bill Johnson:

"He laid his divinity aside" (When Heaven Invades Earth; chapter 7; page 110). ~ Bill Johnson
"While Jesus is eternally God, He emptied Himself of His divinity and became a man...it’s vital to note that He did all His miracles as a man, not as God. If He did them as God, I would still be impressed. But because He did them as a man yielded to God, I am now unsatisfied with my life, being compelled to follow the example He has given us. Jesus is the only model for us to follow". (Article from Charisma Magazine dated February 23, 2012; also listen to sermon dated May 6, 2012 around the 25:00 to the 28:00 minute mark). ~ Bill Johnson
