According to Christian religious traditions, the word ‘Trinity’ is typically used to refer to God’s existence as a unified version of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each person is completely distinct from the other but still unified in essence. In the Bible, God is described as being “God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit” . “He who has seen me has seen the Father,” Jesus says in John 14:8-11 and also is referred to as being “One God” in 1 Corinthians 8:4. “There is no God but one.”
