Comparison of Christian Religions

Compare the beliefs of various Christian denominations concerning the Holy Trinity.

See note below about consistency of beliefs*

Holy Trinity


Three persons: God the Father, a spiritual being; Jesus Christ – very God, a being  of same nature and essence as the Father; Holy Spirit – the great regenerating power.

Assemblies of God

There is one God, composed of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God created this world and everything in it.


One of God only, as is Capable of manifesting three distinct and separate persons. Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  All are equal in perfection, distinct in office, one in substance.


Only one God (numerically), and three distinct divine persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost capable of three personages.  They all have the same divine nature.

Christian Scientist

Consisting of the unity of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit,  not three persons in one.  They are one divine Principle consisting of three offices:  Life, Truth, and Love.

Church of God in Christ

God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Ghost create the Trinity. Each member of the Trinity is equal in power, glory, and substance.

Church of
Jesus Christ

Three separate and distinct personages. God the Eternal Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. The Father and the Son have bodies of flesh and bone and created man in Their image. The Holy Ghost is a spirit. These constitute the Godhead and are one in purpose.

Disciples of Christ

Have discarded most of the doctrines concerning the Trinity, and are not concerned about it's nature or functions. Baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as set forth in the New Testament.

Eastern Orthodox

Three persons in one: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Of the same spirit-substance. They are undivided, non-confused and equal in all things.


Three person in one God.  God, the Father-Creator, God the Son- Redeemer, God the Holy Ghost-Sanctifier. They are one substance.

Jehovah's Witness

Jehovah God and Jesus Christ are two separate and distinct persons.  They are not combined with the so-called "Holy Ghost" in one Godhead commonly called "The Trinity".


God is Trinity, meaning three distinct persons in one divine essence. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, Holy Ghost (third person) manifest God,  through which God is made manifest.


Consists of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). They are three distinct entities which are one spirit-substance.


Consists of the Father, Son, And Holy Spirit.  Of one substance yet three separate personages.  Constitutes the Godhead and are one in power and glory.  They are manifestations of the one Godhead.


Quakers are a faith of "experience", rather than accepted dogmas.  What is known about God, Christ, or the Holy Spirit, is know "experimentally", and is the true guide.  Belief in Trinity is example of speculation.


Do not believe in the Trinity. This would be contrary to the unity of things as we understand them.  Christ was a great moral teacher only.

United Church of Christ

Believe in the Holy Trinity.  The Statement of Faith say: "We believe in God, the Eternal Spirit,  Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."  The Holy Spirit is considered separately.
