Sabellius



Who was Sabellius?

Sabellius (3rd century) was a teacher in Rome who argued that God was one being who manifested in three modes, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He was the Father at creation, the Son at redemption, and the Spirit in sanctification. This position has also been called “modalism” and stands in contrast to the doctrine of the Trinity which states that God is one is three distinct persons.
