Abstract and Keywords
This article analyzes the interrelation among the doctrine of Trinity, the Church, and the Sacraments. It explains that the Trinity, the Church and the Sacraments are inseparably linked in Christian faith because the Church sees her faith in her sacramental practice, which in turn is based on Trinitarian faith. It argues that the theology of the Church requires first not an account of its visible structures but an account of how humans, through the missions of Christ and the Holy Spirit, come to share in the relationships of the divine Persons.
