Question Received> Why Trinitarian Baptism? Answer - Jesus Is LORD!

             God In The Flesh Was Incarnate as This Heavenly Host Came To Worship And Protect

Question received:: What does it mean in Mathew 28vs19 to go & baptize in the name of the Father, Son & the Holy Spirit, and is it relevant to do now & if so how?

What does it mean in Matthew 28:19 to baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
It means what it says.
Matthew 28:19 (NKJV)
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
The purpose of the church is to worship, disciple believers and
evangelize (make new believers).  This is the divine plan for the church.

The Trinity or Godhead, is God the Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit.
Jesus is God and perfect and sinless.  Only Jesus, who was God and fully human, qualified to die on the cross to pay for the sinners for those who would humbly repent (turn from) their sins and believe and confess Jesus is LORD or as it was said God In the flesh.

The Godhead was there at Jesus baptism.
Matthew 3:16–17 (NKJV)
16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in ...

 Jesus consistently taught this though He never used the word Trinity.
John 15:26 (NKJV)
26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.

John 28:19 is solid Jesus quoted teaching.  Repent of your sins.  Be baptized in the fullness of God in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Then go evangelize and disciple. 
To deny the fullness of Christ in the Trinity is grave error.
Rejoice in the fullness of Jesus Christ who is LORD.

This is just not relevant - It t is commanded by King Jesus!
