Oneness of God:

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). Gods 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:

  1. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23).
  2. Jesus is God manifest in the flesh: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (I Timothy 3:16).
  3. In Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:8-10).
  4. The Father and Son are one, not two:I and my Father are one” (John 10:30). “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?” (John 14:9).
  5. The Son is the Everlasting Father manifested in the flesh: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7).

God is totally, absolutely one in person and essence.
