Q: Is belief in the Holy Trinity essential for Christians?

A: The existence of the triune God as three divine and distinct persons in one, true God was revealed to the apostles by Jesus Christ and confirmed by the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.

The Trinity doctrine of the Catholic Church predates the Bible by some 350 years, and is not dependent on scripture at all, although knowing the doctrine, it is quite simple to find biblical support for it.

Only the descriptive term “Trinity” took some time to be agreed upon by the Church. Otherwise, personal knowledge of the triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit … has always been essential to the authentic Christian faith.
