I would certainly have no problem with that, as would most Christians.
however, please understand that there ARE Christians who are not
Trinitarians, i.e., they do not believe that the Jesus was in fact God.
I don't see how they can believe that way, but they do. And the important
thing (the heart of the matter) is that they trust that Jesus was God's
servant whose death paves the way for our salvation.
