Christianity: What is the Trinity?

  • Christians believe that there is only one God. They are monotheists.
  • Christians believe that God has three different natures, personalities or persons.

  • The three persons of the Trinity are: God the Father (the creator of the universe), God the Son (Jesus – God in human form), and God the Holy Spirit (describes how God affects the lives of Christian believers).
  • Christians believe that the idea of the Trinity is found in the Bible, and it is a key concept of all of the Creeds of the Christian Church.

The Trinity is a tricky concept to understand. It is important to remember that Christians only believe in one God. The three persons of the Trinity are all God.
