First of all Mormons ARE Christian. Mormon is just a nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The atonement of Jesus Christ is at the absolute center of all of our beliefs.
Anyway; you can go to www.mormon.org there's a whole section there with a run down of our basic beliefs which come "straight from the horse's mouth" rather than other people's interpretations of our beleifs.

Galatians 1:6-9 was written addressing a problem in the church at that time. There were various Christians Paul was upset with because they were entering his ministry and preaching another gospel because they did not agree with things Paul taught. It was specifically written to the churchs of Galatia (Gal. 1:2). If you want to take that scripture and use it today, I'd say all "Christian" churches are wrong. There are many different versions of things going around. Some churches believe in infant Baptism, or Baptism by sprinkling, some believe in total immersion. Those are not the same thing and can not both be right. Same with things like Communion. Baptists certainly don't do the same thing as Catholics do for Communion. Mormons have their own beliefs, and frankly they have more answers and act more Christian, than most others I have met. However I am quite against Organized Religion, I worship privately.
