What Do Biblical Unitarians Believe?

Our Statement of Beliefs

Biblical Unitarianism is not to be confused with Unitarian Universalism.

Biblical Unitarians believe in God, Jesus Christ, and the gift of holy spirit.

It is our intention to promote the truth of one God and one Lord with this website.

We are not going to discuss “other Christian topics” on this website, but please check out our website TruthOrTradition.com, which covers a variety of other biblical topics and our expanded Statement of Beliefs.

We believe that the Scriptures are “God-breathed,” perfect in their original writing, without flaw or contradiction, and provide the only sure and steadfast basis for faith. Understanding the Scripture is attainable by applying logic and sound principles of biblical interpretation, in conjunction with the spirit of God in us.

We believe that the Heavenly Father alone is God (John 17:3).

We believe that God (the Father) is:

  • Supreme – greater than all others
  • Omniscient – having infinite knowledge or understanding
  • Omnipresent – present in all places at the same time
  • Omnipotent – having unlimited power

The Creator of the heavens and earth.

He (the Father) is whom we worship as “God.”

We believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16; Rom. 1:4).

We believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied about in the Old Testament Scriptures (Gen. 3:15).

We believe that Jesus was born in Bethlehem to Mary, a virgin, who was betrothed to Joseph (Matt. 2:1; Luke 1:26-33).

We believe that Jesus was directly descended from David through Mary according to the flesh, as promised to David (Rom. 1:2-4).

We believe that God was literally his father, in that God created his (Jesus’) life in Mary (Luke 1:35).

We believe that Jesus is “the Last Adam.” He achieved behavioral perfection by continually choosing to subject his will to God, his father, all the way to his last breath on the Cross (1 Cor. 15:45; Heb. 5:7).

We believe that in his earthly ministry Jesus was granted all authority on earth by God to teach, heal, raise the dead, forgive sins, and act on behalf of his Father, whom he represented (Acts 2:22, John 3:34, Heb. 1:3).

We believe that on the third day after he died, God honored his promise and raised Jesus from the dead and gave him a new body that was and remains incorruptible (Acts 10:39-41; 13:29-31).

We believe that God also highly exalted Jesus, gave him the “seat” at his right hand (made him His right hand man), made him “Lord,” and gave him all authority in heaven and on earth (Phil. 2:9-11; Acts 2:36; Matt. 28:18).

We believe that God has essentially given Jesus functional equality with Himself, and that only with regard to the throne is God greater than Jesus (Gen. 41:40; Matt. 28:18).

We believe that Jesus was designated by God to be the mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5).

We believe that God is “holy” and that He is “spirit,” and that He is often referred to as the “Holy Spirit” in Scripture. God is the Giver, and the gift He gives via the new birth is “holy spirit,” His divine nature (Isa. 6:3; John 4:24; Acts 2:38).

We believe that when the Last Adam has completed his mission of restoring the Paradise that the First Adam lost by his disobedience, including the creation of a new heaven and earth, Jesus will again be subject to God (1 Cor. 15:24-28).
