Debates on Oneness Pentecostal Theology

Last Updated: April 10, 2017

The debates that focus on Oneness Pentecostal theology center around two issues: the Doctrine of God (Theology Proper) and the Doctrine of Salvation (Soteriology).

In the first category, the discussion centers around whether the Oneness view of God is correct, or if the Trinity is correct. In the second, debates normally center around the necessary conditions of salvation on Oneness theology, which are speaking in tongues as the initial evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit, and baptism in Jesus’ name by immersion.

In every debate I have listed the name of the Oneness Pentecostal debater first. As much as possible I’ve linked to other websites where these are posted. In some cases I can only link to where you can purchase the audio. I’ve provided my own links when the audio can no longer be found elsewhere (to my knowledge) or when the audio comes from outdated websites that are difficult to locate.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting the Video Speed Controller plugin to increase the play speed on videos.
