Permits something like this would work.

First, I arbitrarily define your data.

triplets = Transpose[{Array[a, {6}], Array[b, {6}], Array[c, {6}]}];

Then, we write a function that does what you want and Map it onto the

  F[{a_, b_, c_}] = a Sin[b x + c];
  Map[F, triplets]]

We get what I think you want.

{a[1] Sin[x b[1] + c[1]], a[2] Sin[x b[2] + c[2]], a[3] Sin[x b[3] + c[3]],
  a[4] Sin[x b[4] + c[4]], a[5] Sin[x b[5] + c[5]], a[6] Sin[x b[6] + c[6]]}

P.S. -- It is considered better Mathematica practice to you lower case for
the name of user-created functions.
