Satan has many names: the devil, our adversary, Lucifer, the father of lies, a murderer from the beginning, the accuser of the Brethren, the son of perdition, etc.
We believe that satan is a literal created being. We believe that he was kicked out of heaven after starting a rebellion. We believe he became full of pride and began a rebellion in heaven. We believe he imagined that he would take God’s place. We believe that a third part of the angels were also kicked out of heaven. We believe those fallen angels are demons. We believe he is the accuser of the brethren, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. We believe that according to Revelation 20.10: the devil that deceived the world will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, along with the beast (the antichrist) and the false prophet, and they shall be tormented day and night forever. GLORY!
