What is the Trinity?

Untitled design-13

The Trinity is a difficult concept to grasp. Is there one God? Or are there three? These, and other questions have perplexed people through the ages. The best we can do is to accept God’s description of Himself, whether we fully understand it or not. 


In the Genesis account of creation, God said, “Let us make man in our image.” He did not say, “Let me make man in my image.” That implies that God is more than one, and yet we read in God’s declaration to Moses, “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Deuteronomy 6:4). God is one and yet He refers to Himself as “us” and “our”. Is God singular or plural?


The Bible teaches there is one God in whom there are three eternal, distinct, simultaneous persons – the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. All three are the one God, co-eternal and co-equal, yet there is only one God, not three gods, and not one person who took three modes. (Gen. 1:26-27; 3:22; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14, Ephesians 2:18, 1 Peter 1:2).
