Christ Is Lord
The Holy Trinity

Christians believe in one God who has no partner. He is infinite, filling the heavens and the earth. He is the creator of all, Eternal, and Everlasting. His kingdom is without end.

1. The Lord Jesus Himself taught this belief when a Jew came to ask Him about the greatest commandment. He answered him, "And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment."(Mark 12:29-30 KJV) If this commandment had been written in the language of the Qur'an, it would have been "God, our God, is the only (unique) God, the everlasting God."

2.The apsotle Paul declared, "[Is he] the God of the Jews only? [is he] not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing [it is] one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. (Romans 3:29-30 KJV).

3. And the apostle James expressed the same belief saying, "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." (James 2:19 KJV)

4. The Christian creed was taken from these texts along with others in the Bible. The Church has been avowing these beliefs for generations saying, "Truly we believe in one God... Creator of heavens and earth, and the visible and invisible." Read below the meaning of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

THE HOLY TRINITY IN CHRISTIANITY

The doctrine of the holy Trinity in no way means the existence of three gods as some people wrongly imagine. The meaning of this doctrine is - God is one...

Existing in Himself, so He declared Himself as the Father.

Speaking His word, so He declared Himself as the Son, the Word.

Alive in His spirit, so He declared Himself as the Holy Spirit.

It should not be understood from these names that there is a bodily relationship as in human terms, but rather it has a spiritual meaning.

These names are not established or invented by man, but they are the words of divine inspiration in the Holy Book, as you will see from the following references:

1. The Lord Jesus said to His disciples, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19 KJV) Monotheism is clear in His words, "baptising them in the name." He did not say "baptising them in the NAMES of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit."

2. John confirms this understanding: "And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one." (1 John 5:8 KJV)

When comparing the two verses, you find the names of the holy Trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is the holy Trinity in the only God in whom we believe.

THE TRINITY IN THE UNITY

The one God, creator of all living things, must have a personal existence Himself.

The one God, who created man with the ability to speak, must Himself also speak the word.

The one God, who created life in every living being, must Himself be alive in the spirit.

Therefore, it is certain that a holy Trinity should be in the only God as I have already clarified. This is our true belief; God is one in the Trinity and not three gods
