What Do Mormons Believe?

Mormon is a nickname for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are neither Protestant nor Catholic, instead identifying themselves as a restoration of the Christianity practiced in the New Testament. They reject the canons added to that gospel at the councils in Nicaea and other places in the several centuries following the death of the apostles. Central to Mormon beliefs is the knowledge that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior of all mankind. Mormons believe that we are incapable of living a life of perfection and so we need a Savior to atone for...

For Mormons, families are a central part of God’s plan. The family is not just a temporary convenience or comfort, but is meant to be eternal, shaping our entire eternal future.

Mormon Self-Reliance

In recent years, the importance of being ready for floods, hurricanes, or even unemployment has been made clear. Those who were prepared had less to worry about than those who did not. Mormons are noted for their preparedness habits—not for a doomsday scenario, but for the ordinary challenges of life. Whether there is no money in the budget for food this week, an illness that makes shopping hard, or a blizzard that leaves them snowbound, Mormons are ready to settle in and wait it out. There are many examples in the Bible of God helping people to know the...
