Iglesia ni Cristo Denies Christ as the Savior

When I asked an INC member who was the Savior, since they deny Christ's divinity, he answered:
 "Dong,Ang Dakilang Ama pa rin ang Tagapagligtas. Instrument lang si Cristo. Paiilalim yan sa Kapangyarihan ng Dios."- Noel Recamier 
In English,
"Boy, the Great Father is still the Savior. Christ is only an instrument. Under the Power of God." - Noel Recamier
Clearly these heretics deny Jesus as the Savior. Jesus is savior, all Christians says He is. In the Bible the Apostles call Jesus savior. No where does it say that He is only an instrument. If He is Savior and God alone is Savior, then Jesus is God as in Titus 2:13. In Titus 2:13 we see Christ's name used in an appositive, an appositive is a noun or noun phrase that renames another noun right beside it. The appositive can be a short or long combination of words. The important point to remember is that a nonessential appositive is always separated from the rest of the sentence with comma(s). 

Are they, the INCs, even Christians?

What Scriptures Says

"To Titus, my true son in our common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior." -Titus 1:4
"but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel." -2 Timothy 1:10
"Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:" -2 Peter 1:1

"whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior," -Titus 3:6

"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen." -2 Peter 3:18

"while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ," -Titus 2:13

"If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning." -2 Peter 2:20

"and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." -2 Peter 1:11

"From this man's descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus, as he promised." -Acts 13:23
