Which Christian denominations do not believe that Jesus is God or son of God?

Most Christian denominations are trinitarian, meaning they believe in a Holy Trinity of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Though the exact nature of the Trinity may differ denomination to denomination, in essence, trinitarians believe that Jesus is both God and the son of God, because all members of the Trinity are one being.Some denominations, though few, are non-trinitarian, meaning they don't believe in the common view of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit being three elements of one Holy Trinity. Some Pentecostal branches and a small handful of newer Christian movements are non-trinitarian, including Jehovah's Witnesses. Most of these denominations believe that Jesus is son of God but not God. Incidentally, most other Christian denominations do not accept these types of denominations as "Christian" at all because the Bible is fairly clear about the nature of Jesus.
