Oneness of God
- "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD"

The oneness of God is a passion for me. I wrote my very first book about it 25 years ago. And after all this time, I finally decided to propagate the oneness doctrine via a website.

The purpose of this site is not to engender contention or attempt to dissuade anyone from what they believe. On the contrary, my purpose is to present what we believe concerning God rather than allowing only our critics to present our beliefs.

In so doing, it is my prayer that this site will help those who are worshipping in apostolic churches, or in any church which believes in the oneness, who have questions. In my over 25 years teaching the oneness, I have encountered many believers who are thirsting for a knowledge of the truth.

I sincerely hope to counter the pervasive thought that oneness believers are a cult of some kind. This false designation places us in the same camp with Jehovah's Witnesses and the Mormons.

This is not at all true.

My other purpose for this site is to present OUR side of the story in OUR words. Remember, there are always two sides to any issue. Unfortunately, the only side many people hear about oneness is that given by those scholars and teachers who criticize us.

It is my belief that the confusion concerning the issue of God can be avoided if the following considerations were put into place:

  • stop relying on the writings of the church fathers like John Calvin (scholars who came along centuries after the death of Jesus' original apostles)
  • stop relying on church creeds (Athanasian and Nicean) and councils
  • stop using unbiblical terminology such as 'trinity', 'the eternal Son', 'God the Son', and others

Lessons can be learned from the Quakers of the 17th century such as William Penn (after whom the state of Pennsylvania is named), Francis Howgill, and George Whitehead. When put to the test by trinitarian scholars, they answered by QUOTING THE SCRIPTURES!

We would ALL do well to honor God by quoting scripture in answering any question instead of relying on intellectual arguments. But if an explanation is necessary to further illustrate a concept, possible error will be avoided by using terms and phrases found in the Bible.
