 The Gospel According to Oneness Pentecostalism
Oneness Pentecostals also cannot believe that any non-Oneness Christian is really saved, because they haven't been baptized "correctly." In Oneness thinking, to be baptized "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" is the equivalent of not being baptized at all.
The modern Oneness movement began at a Pentecostal camp meeting in April 1913 with one man's "revelation" that baptism "in the name of Jesus Christ" (Acts 2:38) was the correct fulfillment of Jesus' command to baptize "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19).
Oneness Pentecostals see themselves as the only ones who teach the "full truth of God." Other Christians, who may have been truly transformed by the Spirit of God, and love and serve the God of the Bible, are seen as "on the way" to the full truth, but not quite there.

Among the contributions of the African-American Pentecostal movement Franklin mentioned was its historical influence in "re-Africanizing Black Christianity," thereby challenging conventional mainline fl churches to assert their distinctive African identities.

"Pentecostals," he said, "must engage or assist in developing new ecumenical venues" for interfaith dialogue though it will necessarily mean "risking our own comfort zone."
