The Trinity

THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY is unique to Christianity. No other faith, religion, sect, or philosophy advocating one God also proclaims that there are three who are God.

This apparent paradox does not mean that there are ‘three gods in one,’ but that one God exists as three distinct persons who are coequal, co-infinite, and co-eternal, all three possessing the same essential nature (Psalm 110:1; John 10:30). Each member of the Godhead — God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit — is therefore a separate person, individually possessing identical, eternal attributes (Matthew 28:19). God is one in essence, but three in persons.
