ONENESS Pentecostalism by steve finnell

Oneness Pentecostalism preaching started in 1913 or 1914. They believe that Jesus is in fact the Father and the  Holy Spirit. It is odd that it took eighteen hundred eighty years for Christians to understand that Jesus was the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Their doctrine is primarily based on one Scripture Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (NKJV)

Is Jesus God? Yes, Jesus is God, however, He is not the Father and He is not the Holy Spirit.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (NKJV)

Jesus was God. Jesus was and is deity. Jesus was with God the Father. Jesus was not God the Father.

John 17:21 "that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. (NKJV)

Jesus wants all Christians to be one. All Christians are one in Christ, however all Christians are not the same person. When Jesus mentions Himself and the Father He says Us. Us is plural not singular.

Jesus said that Christians should be one in Us. That is be one in the Father and Jesus. That does mean all Christians become Jesus nor that all Christians become the Father.

John 7:16 Jesus answered them, and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. (NKJV)

Jesus said His doctrine is that of God the Father.

 Jesus did not send Himself to earth as Savior.

Matthew 12:31-32 "Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 "Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to com. (NKJV)

Jesus is God, however, He is not the Holy Spirit.

There is one God that is manifest in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


Oneness Pentecostals believe you should be baptized in only the name of Jesus. The Scripture they quote is Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (NKJV)

To baptize in the name of Jesus means you are submitting  to the authority of Jesus. If you are told by a police officer to stop in the name of the law you submitting to the authority of the police officer.

If you want to submit to the authority of Jesus then you should do as He said. Matthew 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)
