God's true Plan of Salvation does not disagree with Matthew 28:19 - it fulfills it.
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus says:
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost"
If you have been baptized, chances are that the person who baptized you repeated that scripture as a script. The problem is that Matthew 28:19 is not a script; it's a method.
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, What is the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost? You know the name of the Son, and you may or may not know the Old Testament names of the Father, but what's the Holy Ghost's name? If the Father has many names, which one is Matthew 28:19 referring to?
The reason Jesus worded this commission the way that He did was because He wanted to illustrate a point that is absolutely necessary for every believer to understand. The point is that Jesus IS God. Jesus Christ is the name of the Father, the Son, AND the Holy Ghost because they are all the same person! That's the mystery of God, that God himself visited man on earth as Jesus, and abides within redeemed man as the Holy Spirit ...
