Settling this once and for all!
#16
I don't like that the Oneness vs. Trinity is so divisive. I sympathize with the Trinitarian belief but I am not Trinitarian myself. I think the main thing is that we both believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh and that we rely on Him alone for our salvation. You all don't use the "Persons" terminology. Correct? Here is what we teach in more detail about the Godhead:

What we teach is that there is one God in one Person who has revealed Himself throughout the ages in many manifestations (the main three being the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). We teach that the Father is quite simply YHWH God and that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of YHWH. The Son, in Oneness theology, is eternal in Person but was not eternally Son. We teach that God was not Son until the incarnation. Jesus is the Son of God because His birth through Mary was the means of the incarnation and because His human existence was fathered by the one true God. Jesus, being God existing as a Man, surrendered His divine prerogatives and took upon Himself the form of a servant (taking on every limitation normal people have except for sin, including operating by the anointing of the Spirit, having a limited consciousness, etc.) while never losing His deity in the process. The Father is distinct from the Son in the sense that the Father is deity only, while the Son is both (sinless) human and divine in nature.
