The word trinity comes from the Latin trinitas, which means “triad.” The doctrine of the Trinity is a primary belief of Christians, in which God is understood to be one God who is three persons.

The word itself isn’t in the Bible, as it was coined many years after the Bible was written. The doctrine is derived from numerous passages in the Bible that indicate that while there is only one God, He is known as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is an individual person, and all three are fully God… but are not each other.

We see this most clearly in the New Testament. Jesus is understood to be God, yet the Son of the Father. Jesus was sent by the Father, prayed to the Father, obeyed the Father, and returned to the Father. While on Earth, Jesus taught that He had to go away so the Father could send the Holy Spirit.
