  • Yes, Mormons are Christians. Some people of other religions don't agree though. Mormon is kind of a nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe in Jesus Christ, that he is our Savior. Check out

  • The root of the word Christian literally mean believer in Christ. Therefore technically they are. However many Christian that are not Mormon will argue that they are not, based on Mormons using a separate text. Mormons or LDS will call themselves Christians.

    And I should clarify it is more accurate to say additional text rather than separate.

  • "Christian" is a catch all term applied to any, and all who believe in chirst. There are as many flavors of christianity as there are people, since beliefs vary by individual.
    LDS (mormon- not to be confused with FLDS, though still considered christian), JW, Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Nazarene, Quaker, Methodist, AG (Pentecostal), Messianic, Nondenominational, etc. etc. etc. etc. are ALL christian sects.

  • Yes, Mormons are Christians, the saviour is referenced in all things and we pray in his name. He is the focus of our faith.

  • Yes, Mormons are Christians. Like Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Jehovah's Witnesses & every other Christian denomination their beliefs vary a bit from other denoms, but the fundamental belief in Jesus and whatnot is still there.

  • No.. A Christian is a follower of the Anointed one ( Jesus)
    Mormons do not believe Jesus is the Son of God but believe He is the brother of Satan ( Lucifer) . Where did I get this information? From someone who is a Christian ( not a mormon) who loves the mormons and has done her research, she taught at my school and was sharing a little bit of life in Utah. ( Provo)
