T.D. Jakes is the founder and senior pastor of one of the largest churches in the nation, The Potter’s House, in Dallas, TX. Jakes is a well-known prosperity gospel preacher who has embraced not only the heresy of the Word of Faith movement but also a heretical view of the trinity known as modalism.

The Prosperity Gospel–also known as “Health and Wealth Gospel,” “Name it and Claim it,” and “Word of Faith”–is a perversion of the biblical gospel that teaches that the primary purpose of Jesus’ death and resurrection is to create material gain for those who have enough “faith.” Other prominent adherents to this false gospel are found primarily in the charismatic movement and include prominent figures such as Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, and Joel Osteen.

But equally as troubling is Jakes’ view on the trinity. Modalism is the theological false doctrine that the members of the Trinity are not three distinct persons but rather three “modes” or “manifestations” of activity (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) under which God manifests himself. The official statement of faith on Jakes’ church website reads:

There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

This is clear and undeniable modalism, it is heresy.

Jakes doubled down on his belief, attempting to twist it to sound as though it is no different than the orthodox view of the Trinity, during a session at the Elephant Room in 2012.
