A form of Modalism, Patripassianism teaches that God the Father became incarnate, was born of a virgin, and suffered and died on the Cross.

Patripassianism is an extension and logical result of Modalistic teaching. It teaches that the Son was the human part of Jesus, and the Father was the Christ. The Christ and the Father are the same person who suffered on the cross for the sins of humanity. See Modalism for related Scripture.
