Modalism doctrines teach that God is one person who took three modes. This is different from trinitarian doctrines, which teach that God is three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Annihilationism teaches that sinners and unbelievers completely disappear after death and are not tormented in hell. As the group's newsletters note, God's emotions are too high to burn his own children, and eternal torment is something only the devil can conceive.

The doctrine of the serpent seed teaches that Satan had sexual relations with Eve and the offspring was Cain. The descendants of Cain are referred to as Kenites. The Shepherd's Chapel teaches that Caucasians are the descendants of the 10 lost tribes of Israel. Anglo-Saxons from Britain and America are the true descendants of Israel who traveled north to populate Europe and later migrated to North America. Other races were created on the sixth day, as recorded in Genesis 1. However, Anglo-Saxons were created on the eighth day and are the descendants of the Adam who appears in Genesis 2.
