Survey on phrases or questions about Christianity

Survey or poll. Need lots of opinions to get a good cross section.

If someone says:
Do you know ........ ?
Do you want to know ........ ?
Honk, if you know ........ ?
Come know .........

What is the most desirable word to fill in the blank?
God, Jesus, or Christ.

I'm thinking out of 100 people, Christ would rank 3rd.
If I am correct on that, then the choices may be Jesus or God.

We have a project and trying to decide which is best to use.

Given the target audience, "Jesus" seems the reasonable word. It'd probably be the best word in most cases, but the discussion seems to validate it specifically here.

To accomplish what objective? I don't quite understand the purpose.

Are you simply trying to determine how 'most' people would ask the questions? Do you want to construct the questions to make them more appealing to 'most' people? Do you want the questions to direct attention to a 'Christian' perspective? Or is there some other way we should think about this?

Let me give another example.

Suppose we decide to go with "Honk if you know ......."

Then we are trying to decide whether to use:
1. Honk if you know God.
2. Honk if you know Jesus.
3. Honk if you know Christ.

It seems the choices are not three but only two, since Jesus Christ is the son of God.

We are trying to use the best word to better get across the message.
And the message is "Honk if you know ________ "

Same as if we chose "Do you know _________ ?

Okay, in that case, what is the "message" that needs to be communicated?

The question title includes "Christianity", and I'd normally think that that implies a more specific focus on Jesus than on God. Is that part of the message? For the part about "out of 100 people", is the message expected to be effective for those who believe in God but not Jesus?

It seems to me that the most effective word would depend on the targeted group.

Note that I'm asking about serious elements to me, not to pick on the the question.

I'm not clear how someone could believe in God or Jesus but not the other.
By God I am referring to the Christian God.

Not the God of other religious groups in other countries.
Buddha is a God to Buddhist.

The targeted group will be Christians of various Protestant denominations within the community.

Ask a Jewish person.  He/she might be able to tell you how.

I'll do that as well as ask a Wesleyan which is the chosen denomination by our neighbors.

I think we are going to go with the phrase "Come to know Jesus"
It can have two meanings depending on how the person who reads it, wishes to interpret it.
Come.... may be an invitation to know Jesus in their own way
Come.... may mean to them, to come to our Church to find and know Jesus.
