  • These are our fundamental beliefs:
    1We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
    2We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.
    3We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
    4We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
    5We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.
    6We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

  • 7We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.
    8We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
    9We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.
    10We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.
    11We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

  • 12We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.
    13We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

    We call those The Articles of a Faith because they share our beliefs in a nutshell! :) Feel free to visit Mormon.org or LDS.org for more info.On Mormon.org you can chat online with a missionary who is happy to answer any question you have no matter what it is. Also LDS Moms group on here is open to all so if you have any questions feel free to post in there& the ladies would be happy to answer questions - you dont evenhave to join to post!

  • "Don't let any one, nor the Mormon missionaries, try to explain away what Galatians 1:8 says. "


    Add Mormon haters to that list of "any one". Only you can decide for yourself if you want to believe what the Mormons do or what the Catholics do or what the Baptists or the Jews, ect.


    If you want to know what Mormons believe, ask one or look at one of their websites.mormon.org    lds.org

  • Anon 6:11 here. m2KnL, sorry, but you sure sound like a Mormon hater. Doesn't the Bible say something like "ye shall know them by their fruits"? Matthew 7:16. Your "fruit" seems to be spewing nothing but hate. And I'm pretty sure I never said that you must be in a religion to know about the religion. That's ridiculous.

  • Just ignore the troll. She has a need to tell everyone they're wrong and sticks her fingers in her ears so she can't hear anything else but her own voice patting herself on the back.
