Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the relation between Trinity and salvation. It analyzes the issue of Christian life as an existence in the Trinity through a close reading of selected biblical texts that touch directly on our relationship with the Father, the Son, and/or the Spirit. The analysis indicates that the doctrine of the Trinity has everything to do with the topic of salvation and with the way of life that Christians are summoned to. It argues that faith and the sacraments bring about real transformation through the indwelling of the Spirit and adoptive sonship in the Son, so that Christians already live in the Trinity.

Keywords: Trinity, salvation, Christian life, biblical texts, sacraments, indwelling of the Spirit
