Do Protestants believe in the trinity?
Not all. According to the New Bible Dictionary: "The term
'Trinity' is not itself found in the Bible. It was first used by
Tertullian at the close of the 2nd century, but received wide
currency [common use in intellectual discussion] and formal
elucidation [clarification] only in the 4th and 5 centuries" (1996,
It further explains that "the formal doctrine of the Trinity was the result of several inadequate attempts to explain who and what the Christian God is...To deal with these problems the Church Fathers met in [A.D.] 325 at the Council of Nicaea to set out an orthodox biblical definition concerning the divine identity." However, it would not be until 381 A.D. at the Council of Constantinople that the divinity of the Spirit was affirmed (ibid.).
This is a manmade concept and not found anywhere in the Bible. So many have made surprising admissions about the Trinity - "an absolute mystery," "mysterious in its origin and its content," "impossible for Christians actually to understand," " unintelligible," "misunderstood," "presents strange paradoxes" and "widely disputed." One would have to question then why/how a doctrine on which billions of people base their faith and salvation is accepted. The Apostle Paul was inspired to tell us in 1 Corinthians 14:33 that "God is not the author of confusion" yet this doctrine of men is total confusion.

All believe in the Holy Trinity.
No. Originally it was for Protestants. Catcholics can now attend it.
The trinity was a completely Christian invention that was not accepted by the Jews. Remember that one element of the Trinity is "the son" and Jews do not believe that Jesus was the son of God or the Messiah, so it would be completely nonsensical for them to believe in a trinity.

Is there a type of Christianity that doesn't believe in the trinity and believes in Jesus'atonement but not that he was a sacrifice or a substitute for your sin only that he died for your sins?
In relation to the trinity, there is no type of Christianity which doesn't believe in the trinity. The rejection of the trinity automatically disqualifies one from legitimately holding the term Christian, since it invariably involves a downgrading of the one who Christians believe in and worship, Jesus Christ. A number of different sects and cults reject the trinity and also reject the full deity of Jesus Christ as taught in the Christian scriptures.
