TRINITY




The Christian doctrine of the Trinity, one of the most important in mainstream Christian faith, teaches the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons. God exists as three persons but is one God, meaning that God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have exactly the same nature or being as God the Father in every way.

The word TRINITY Can never be found in the Bible, However there are verses that supports this verses.






A. GOD THE FATHER (our Creator) IS GOD.
Everyone agrees on this. Jehovah or YHWH is God and he is our creator. This is very well stated in the Old Testament of the Bible.


2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. -Phil. 1:2
B. JESUS IS GOD.
The following verses tells us how Jesus became God. He was is the beginning and everything was created through him. Jesus came to this world and the world did not recognize who he is(John 1:10). Jesus is the image of the invisible God and he is present in the creation(Col. 1:15-17). 

The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  - John 1:1, 14

 C. HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD.

We can see this proof is Acts 5 when Ananias and his wife stole the money from the church.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.” - Acts 5:3–4

 We can see that the Holy Spirit is present in the creation as well through the statement of Job in Job 33:4

"4 The Spirit of God has made me;   the breath of the Almighty gives me life"

We can see on this following event is the Bible that the trinity exist.

1. At the baptism on Jesus (Mt 3:16–17 ; Mk 1:10–11; Luke 3:22 ; John 1:32).

 16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” - Mt 3:16–17 
2. When the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary (Luke 1:26-38).
35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. - Luke 1:35
 3. Hebrew 9:14
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
 4.  During the Stoning of Stephen

55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. Acts 7:55
5. The Great Commission
19 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, - Matthew 28:19
6. Final Greetings of Paul to the Corinthian Church.
14 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
