Understanding the Nature of the God of Scripture

The Trinity: One God in Three Persons – Introduction

The Bible says that only one God exists; there are no others. The one God is infinite, eternal, all-knowing, and all-powerful. He is a personal, living, Spirit. There is something else; this one God consists of three distinct eternal Persons, or centers of consciousness. They are God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The fact that one God exists in three Persons is known as the doctrine of the Trinity. This difficult doctrine needs to be understood as best as possible. In this book, we will look extensively at what the Bible says regarding God’s triune nature. We will find that each distinct Person in the Trinity has attributes, or characteristics, that belong to God alone. In addition, each member of the Trinity does things only God can do.

We will also look at how the different members of the Trinity work together in the various ministries that God performs. Each has a particular function within the Godhead. It is important that we understand the role of each member of the Trinity.

In addition we will find that the doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to the Christian faith. Without the Trinity, there is no salvation for humanity, no forgiveness of sins, and no guidance for believers today. Consequently, the doctrine of the Trinity is essential to Christianity. It is indeed one of the most important doctrines that a Christian can study.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture.
