    Yes it does. Jesus commands to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy spirit;  the trinity or triune God.

    If you mean does the Bible use the term 'Trinity', then no it doesn't.  But the concept is present throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament.  In Genesis, it states "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness".  It also refers to "the Spirit of God moving over the waters" during the creation sequence.  These kinds of references and more continue throughout the Old Testament, including verses referring to Jesus.

    In the New Testament, there are even more and clearer references to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit such as the one Dave Matthews cites.  The concept of a triune God is throughout the Bible from start to finish but you won't find the term 'Trinity', or it's equivalent in Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic, in the Bible itself.  That term wasn't coined until after the Bible texts were written.

    The first book of the Bible Genesis mentions the father son and spirit. It says in the begining God (the father)created the heavens and the earth:  the wind of God/ spirit of God hovered over creation and The Lord said Let there be Light! he said -, the Word of God .
    The word Trinity is not there but yes he said go into all world .... and  baptise in the name of the Father Son and Spirit.
