Should biblical Christian churches be Christ-centered (Christocentric)? Should the doctrines of the Father (Patriology) and the Holy Spirit (Pnematology) also be equally emphasized? Can a church be Patriocentric or Pnemacentric and be biblical?

There have been charges leveled at some movements such as the Pietist Movement in Germany and other movements that they place too much emphasis on Christ to the exclusion of the Father and the Holy Spirit. This may be true to a certain degree. The doctrines of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit must be taught with equal emphasis so that Christians will know what they believe.
should a church be Patriocentric or Pnemacentric? No. For

by hyper-Pentecostalism and the Latter Rain, that are
Pnemacentric. They spend most of their time focusing on the Holy
Spirit to the exclusion of preaching the Gospel while, in fact, they
don't even have a biblical doctrine of the Holy Spirit. I believe
