Confused by the Trinity? Learn the very basics of God’s triune nature, and why it matters so much.

The second part of the definition of the Trinity is this: God is three persons. God has eternally existed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the biblical evidence for this fact is clear.
The third and final part of the doctrine of the Trinity is this: each person of the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is fully God. This is fundamental to a biblical understanding of God.
