There are two huge myths surrounding the belief (or disbelief) of trinitarianism. Most followers of William Marrion Branham will absolutely deny that they believe in the Trinity of God, and will tell you with unfounded confidence that William Branham himself was never a trinitarian.
William Branham violently opposed trinitarianism -- but only in his home churches of Jeffersonville, IN and Tucson, IN. (with a few scattered others later.)
The second myth is Branham's opinion as to what mainstream churches believed concerning the Trinity. Most mainstream or denominational churches do not believe that there are three separate gods that can be broken into three like a three-foot rule. Most believe the Godhead exactly as the Bible describes.
The Latter Day Saints (Mormons), which have separated themselves from mainstream churches, believe that there are three separate gods in the trinity. For a full review of what others believe and what the scriptures say, please visit http://thriceholy.net
Now, my precious brother, I know this is a tape also. Now, don't get excited. Let me say this with godly love, the hour has approached where I can't hold still on these things no more, too close to the Coming. See? "Trinitarianism is of the Devil!" I say that THUS SAITH THE LORD! Look where it come from. It come from the Nicene Council when the Catholic church become in rulership. The word "trinity" is not even mentioned in the entire Book of the Bible. And as far as three Gods, that's from hell. There's one God. That's exactly right.

Most followers would be shocked to find that outside of his home churches, William Branham supported the trinitarian belief and openly claimed to support the Persons of the Trinity.
See, you believe in God; you believe in the Son, believe in the Holy Ghost; that's the Trinity. We believe in that. See?
