In Matthew 28:19 (to cite one example), Jesus commanded His followers to baptize the disciples whom they would make in the NAME (not NAMES) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, implying both God's unity of being, as well as a plurality and equality of Persons within that Being.

Coupled with verses such as John 10:30 (in which Jesus said that He and the Father are one), and events such as Jesus' baptism (Matthew 3:16-17 and Luke 3:21-22) (in which all three Persons were manifested), Scripture clearly indicates that the one true God is multi-personal.
