Are Mormons Christians?

Jesus at the door

Mormons worship the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Redeemer.


Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  Under the direction of our Heavenly Father, Jesus created all things in heaven and earth.

We believe that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, that he lived a sinless life, and that he suffered and died for the sins of all humanity.

We rejoice to know that after three days he was resurrected, and now rules at the right hand of God the Father.  Through him, all people will be resurrected, and all who choose to accept his atonement and follow him can be forgiven of their sins and perfected through his divine grace.

Mormon temple worship is the highest expression of our belief that Jesus is the only way to salvation, and that he offers resurrection, salvation, and hope for the entire human family.  We try to be worthy examples of the church that bears his name: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Despite this, a minority of protestant critics claim that Mormons are not Christians.  Click here to learn why.
