It is an article of faith of Islam to believe in Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). If a person calls himself a Muslim and doesn't believe in, respect, or love Jesus (peace be upon him) then he is NOT a Muslim.
We believe that Jesus (peace be upon him) was one of the mightiest messengers of God.
We believe that he was the messiah, translated as christ.
We believe he was born miraculously without any male intervention.
We believe that he gave life to the dead with Gods permission.
We believe he healed those born blind and lepers with Gods permission
However we do not believe that Jesus (peace be upon him) ever claimed divinity, or that he was God, son of God, or that he said "Worship me". We also do not believe that he was crucified, nor died for anyones' sins. In Islam, each person is accountable for their sins.
We believe in One God, who has no associates whatsoever in His Divinity, and we believe in all the Prophets that God sent whether we've heard of them or not. That includes the final Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). We don't pick and choose which ones to believe in while denying others. We believe in them as they were, the noblest of humanity chosen by God to guide and warn mankind. We neither reject some of them, nor exaggerate the status of others to something it wasn't, i.e. divine.
