Muslims believe in Jesus (pbuh)
Muslims respect and revere Jesus(peace be upon him). They consider him to be one of the mightiest messengers of Allah. The Quran confirms his virgin birth and an entire chapter is called Maryam (Mary).

Quran describes the birth of Jesus (pbuh) as follows

Behold! the angels said "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus the son of Mary held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. "He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity and he shall be (of the company) of the righteous." She said: "O my Lord! how shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?" He said: "Even so: Allah createth what He willeth; when He hath decreed a plan He but saith to it `Be' and it is!

Jesus was born miraculously by the command of God, the same command that had brought Adam into being with neither a father nor a mother. God has said in the Quran
The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam: He created him from dust then said to him: "Be" and he was.

Muslims believe that Jesus (pbuh) performed many miracles with the permission of Allah. Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified. It was the plan of Jesus' enemies to crucify him, but God saved him and raised him upto Him.

Neither Prophet Jesus (pbuh) nor Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) came to change the doctrine of the belief in One God, brought by earlier prophets but they came to confirm and renew this belief in Tawheed or Unity of God.

Anybody is welcome to believe in Jesus. He only preached love and brotherhood. He asked people to show the left chin if someone hits you at the right chin. Such message shows how he is concered about the mankind and taught people of forgiveness and never to report to violence
