That's why I'm unsure.  She definitely did not say that during the baptism itself, but during her sermon, she iterated that Jesus's command was to baptize in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  She explained, as best she could, the oneness of the trinity and that we are not worshiping three separate gods.  I believe she sincerely believed she was following Jesus' command.  I just am unsure if intent alone is sufficient if the wording isn't absolutely accurate.

Edit: Whether she believed she was fulfilling Jesus' command alone is irrelevant. Based on her sermon, I believe her sermon demonstrated she accurately understood Jesus' command, and the necessity of baptizing in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. I think she believed she was fulfilling that command.
