Rather than affirm the man-made doctrine known as the Trinity, we adhere to the wonderful, biblical revelation and doctrine that God is one (Deuteronomy 6:4, Zechariah 14:9, Mark 12:29, I Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 4:4-5, Colossians 2:8-9, I Timothy 3:16, and many other verses). The terms Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are biblical, and they do not refer to multiple, divine personas. God is not a committee of three divine persons (which would be three gods). Rather, the terms Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (and terms such as God, Lord, etc., as well) are proper, biblical titles that refer to the one, true God. These terms refer to various elements of God’s character and nature. God is the Father of all creation, the Father of humankind, and the Father of the man Jesus Christ. Referring to God as Father is common sense. God is a Spirit (John 4:24, II Corinthians 3:17, and many other verses). God is Holy (Psalm 22:3 and many other verses). God’s Spirit is the only Spirit in the universe that is truly absolutely holy. Referring to God as the Holy Spirit is common sense, and is not a reference to a divine person separate from God the Father. God is not a separate person from His own Spirit. “Now the Lord is that Spirit” (II Corinthians 3:17). As a Spirit—which does not have flesh and bone (Luke 24:39)—God did not have a corporeal body until He begat Christ, His own flesh, as a babe in Bethlehem. As a human man, Jesus literally was and is the Son of God (the lamb of God, or flesh of God), and yet, according to the scriptures, Jesus also was and is God:
God is totally, absolutely one in person and essence.
