According to Oneness Pentecostals, the answer to the question ‘what must I do to be saved?’ is not answered with the words of Paul and Silas, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved’ (Acts 16:31).   Rather, they add water baptism in Jesus name as a necessary component for salvation.  We explore this ancient heresy known as Baptismal Regeneration and seek through scripture to refute it.

In answering the Oneness Pentecostals on the issue pertaining to the relationship between Jesus’ humanity and deity, we turn once again to look at early Church history, namely the Council of Ephesus (431 AD) and the Council of Chalcedon (451 AD).  We also turn to scripture to address the question...'In what sense did Jesus Christ assumed a physical body and yet at the same time exist as God?'  This teaching also seeks to establish the person of the Holy Spirit as it relates to the doctrine of the Trinity. 

Finally, we examine some of the famous proof texts used by Oneness Pentecostals to argue in favour of Modalism.

Oneness Pentecostals outright reject the Triune nature of God and instead take a Unitarian position, namely that God is not only singular in being (Monotheism) but also singular in person.  Trinitarianism however stands in direct contrast to Unitarianism and defines God as singular in being yet three in persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  This teaching seeks to give a defence of the doctrine of the Trinity over and against that of Modalism.

2013/14 saw Oneness Pentecostals celebrate their centennial anniversary.  However, the heresies that this group holds to regarding the nature of God and the person of Jesus Christ can be traced back much further, to the early beginnings of Christianity in the second and third centuries A.D.  Very early on in it's history, the Church of Jesus Christ has had to withstand and refute the heresies of Modalists who denied the Trinity and instead sought to teach that God is only one in relation to His person.  This teaching explores that early history and in particular addresses what took place at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D.

On the surface Oneness Pentecostals have many similarities to mainstream Pentecostals and that is what makes them so dangerous.  They absolutely affirm the deity of Jesus Christ, they believe in the continuing gifts of the Holy Spirit, they believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible word of God, they believe in the literal Second Coming of Jesus Christ, they believe in the final judgment of the wicked and in a literal hell.  On the surface one would not find a great deal of disagreement; YET there are four main fundamental beliefs that set them apart from orthodox Biblical Christianity.  This teaching examines by way of introduction these four fundamental differences and tracks the history of this cult which had its inception out of Classic Pentecostalism.

When one asks a Mormon if he has full assurance that if he was to die tonight that he would go to heaven; he would respond by saying I hope so.  This is because the LDS church like all cults has an intricate and complex system of works that members must go through to prove that they are worthy enough to receive

In this teaching we examine this works based system along with the LDS's teaching on the afterlife.

At first glance, it appears that the Jesus of Mormonism is the same Jesus of the Scriptures.  However, upon closer inspection of their literature we shall see that nothing could be further from the truth!!

The Bible is categorically clear and absolutely unwavering on this one thing, namely the belief that there is but one true God!!  This concept of monotheism oozes out of every part of the Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament.  Orthodoxy demands that the adherent of Christianity holds to the belief in the existence of only one true God!!  Every prophet from Moses to Jesus taught that there was but one God.  Mormonism however, believes in a multiplicity of gods, in fact every practising Mormon has the potential to become a God! 

This teaching explores the theology of Mormonism as it relates to the doctrine of God and contrasts it with the clear teaching of the Bible.
