Intelligent Design and the Need for Jesus

Dembski says:

God, as understood by the world’s great monotheistic faiths, is an infinite personal transcendent creator. The designer responsible for biological complexity, by contrast, need only be a being capable of arranging finite material objects to display certain patterns. Accordingly, this designer need not even be infinite. Likewise, that designer need not be personal or transcendent (cf. the “designer” in Stoic philosophy).

That being the case, would that mean we are not created in gods image and that Jesus didn't die for our sins? Wouldn't that mean the bible was fallible. SHouldn't we then worship the non-infinite, non-transcendent material arranger? I'd really like to see Dembski discuss the theological implications for christianity behind that statement!
