The Doctrine of Trinity asserts the following:

There is one and only one God. 
  YHWH Elohim Echad
 

               God eternally exists in three distinct persons.

The Father is God,
 the Son is God, and
 the Holy Spirit is God.

The Father is not the Son,
 the Son is not the Father,
 the Father is not the Spirit.
