Why The Trinity Matters

Updated: May 5


There is one God who exists as three co-eternal, co-equal persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All Christians believe this, but why is it so important? Why is it such a non-negotiable, fundamental truth?


Here are a few reasons:

  1. The Trinity explains the profound unity and diversity we see in creation, the church and marriage.

  2. Creation involved each member of the Godhead

  3. The resurrection of Christ involved each member of the Trinity

  4. All are necessary for a sinner’s salvation. The Father forgives on the basis of the Son’s atonement and this forgiveness is bestowed by the Spirit

  5. For this reason believers are baptized into the name of the Trinity (Matt 28:19 – one name but three Persons)

  6. A believer’s spiritual growth involves Father, Son and Holy Spirit. For example, when we pray, we normally pray to the Father in the Son’s name by means of the Spirit

  7. Marriage and the local church are both modelled after the Trinity in terms of equality of persons but distinction in roles

So, as you can see, take away the Trinity and you take away the Christian faith and any hope, forgiveness and grace we have.
