The Trinity is the Christian doctrine that God exists as three distinct divine persons, as God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is something that is so very complex and hard to understand, but that is the God we worship, a complex God. The understandings of the Trinity cannot be found in human logic that is why we must follow the logic of God. Christianity explains that The Father is not the same person as the Son, the Son is not the same person as the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is not the same person as the Father. Each is distinct and divine, yet there are not three gods but only one True God. We understand God as a Trinity through the teachings of the Bible. When we look into the Bible is does not directly speak the word “Trinity” but it does tell that God is a Trinity and what we can find through the scriptures of the Bible, is the truth of the Trinity. When we look into the Bible, there are many things that are not direct, many things that have to be dissected and looked into deeper to get a better understanding for, and the Trinity is one. What we can find in the Scriptures is how each person of the Trinity fulfills their specific role, and the scriptures also reveals to us how those three roles relate to one another. I’ve read that in the scriptures we see that God the Father creates a plan, Jesus Christ the Son goes on to implement this plan, and the Holy Spirit goes on to administer the plan.
The Bible opens up with the book of Genesis, as it reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” Right away there in the very beginning of time, we see God's revelation of himself as two Persons God and the Spirit of God. We can continue with Genesis 1:26 in which God said “let us make man in our image, according to our likeness…” In this verse God uses the words “us” and “our” which would show that he is speaking to others. The “us” that is being referred to here is the Trinity. Man is made in the image of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Some have said that “us” was referring to the angels, but that cannot be, and God was not speaking to the angels, because angels are not made in the image of God. If “us” refers to the angels, then angels and God are equally our creator. Since we do not believe in that, therefore we know that “us” is not the angels. "See the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:4. Here we see that Jesus Christ is God, Jesus Christ is our co-creator because he is the exact image of God. What we affirm with this theology is that Christ has existed from the beginning of time. Although the world only physically knew Christ after his birth, Jesus Christ as a Divine Being has always exist.
In the Bible we find many scriptures that support the idea of the Trinity. In Matthew 28:19 we read "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit...." Another example is in 2 Corinthians 13:14 as it states "May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all." Through these text, we go on to see God the father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit all being put on the same level. Baptizing in the name of all three Godheads show us the putting of all three on the same level. Then the second verse, asking for grace from all…
