I don't understand why you don't believe in the Trinity? There are many verses where God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are told to be true. Matthew 28:19 says "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"

My friend, 

The trinity is a man made construct using pagan theology. It has nothing to do with Biblical based doctrine and Theology of God. To see the trinity in the Bible, you have to read it into the Bible. It isn’t in the Bible. The concept of the trinity is not what the Apostles or the early Church taught. Furthermore, the trinity is dogma that evolved over time, and the modern teaching of the trinity is vastly different than the first explanation of the trinity. 

Matthew 28:19 is not a good verse to support the trinity teaching. First, the phrases “of the Father”, “of the Son”, and of the Holy Ghost" are descriptive prepositional phrases and define the singular noun “name”. There is only one name. Father is not a name, Son is not a name, and neither is Holy Spirit. Since the Bible only mentions one name by which we all must be saved, that name has to be Jesus. This is not a trinitarian verse, it is a restatement of agreement with Acts 2:38, which states believers in Christ who have repented must then be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. No titiles mentioned at all in Acts 2:38, yet Matthew 28:19 doesn’t tell the Church to baptize in the titles of God, but in the name of God. 

Trinitarian Christianity is not Biblical Christianity. Nor is it the teachings of the Apostles as they recieved it from Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Ghost. No, it is in reality now tritheism. Three gods. That is paganism. This is why Orthodox Jews condemn Christianity, because trinitarianism claims God is three, not one. What was it Paul wrote to the Church in Galatia? 

Galatians 1:8   But even if we — or, for that matter, an angel from heaven! — were to announce to you some so-called “Good News” contrary to the Good News we did announce to you, let him be under a curse forever!

Paul never taught trinity, why do you espouse it.

The Apostles never had any inkling of the trinity, so why do you proclaim it?

The prophets of old never taught God is anything else but one in number, so why do you preach He is three?

That moment when you’re doing the side-hug-prayer with someone at church and someone else comes over out of nowhere and starts praying over you about all of the things you’ve kept in your mind for weeks and starts speaking prophetically over your life, not knowing anything about your struggle or prayers

If anyone tells you that being a Christian will be easy peasy,run!

Don’t let them fool you with any prosperity gospel. As a Christian, you will have something that’ll challenge your faith. You will go through trials. You must be willing  to endure. “If we suffer with Him, we will reign with Him, if we deny Him, He will also deny us.” - 2 Timothy 2:12
Your reward will be out of this world ;)
God bless.
