What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Official Answer

Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God. His birth, life, death, and resurrection fulfilled the many prophecies contained in the scriptures concerning the coming of a Savior. He was the Creator, He is our Savior, and He will be our Judge (see Isaiah 9:6, 53:3-7; Psalms 22:16-18).

Under the direction of our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created the earth (John 1:10; Hebrews 1:2).

When Jesus lived on the earth (approximately 2,000 years ago), He led a perfect life. He taught by word and example how people should live in love of God and others.

Through His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and by giving His life on the cross—that is, by performing the Atonement —Jesus Christ saves us from our sins (1 Peter 2:21) as we follow Him. Because of the Atonement, you can be forgiven of your sins when you sincerely repent (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 26:30).

Through His Resurrection, Jesus Christ saved us from death. Because He overcame death, we will all be given the gift of resurrection, that is to say our spirits will be eternally re-united with our bodies (Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:22). When life on this earth is over, Jesus Christ will be the final Judge (Acts 17:31; John 5:21-22; Acts 10:42).

  • We believe that Jesus is The Chirst the Son of God, and that all may come unto Him and find peace in this life and eternal life in the life to come. Believeing in Jesus Christ alone isn't enough, we have to live what He taught. He taugh, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." -John 14:15. He was sent to do His Father's will, and to be lifted up upon the cross -3 Nephi 27, The Book of Mormon. He is my personal Savior, He knows me perfectly, He loves me perfectly, and He gave His life for me so I will live again, and so I may be saved from my sins. I love Him and want to keep His commandments so I can live forever in His presence with my family. Show more

  • I believe that Christ willingly sacrificed himself so that we all could be saved and not have to suffer for our own sins. Through our actions and choices, we can return to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through the Atonement. Christ made that possible for us. He is the foundation of our gospel. Because He suffered for all our pains and sufferings and sins combined, He loved us so much to do that. And I'm so grateful for that. And we do believe that He is the Son of God, a separate being.

  • We absolutely believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe that He was the God of the Old Testament. Under the direction of the Father, He created the earth. He spoke to the Old Testament prophets such as Noah, Abraham and Moses. He was born to the virgin Mary in Bethlehem. He walked among the people of Palestine, working many mighty miracles. He suffered and died for our sins. He rose from the grave and ascended to Heaven to stand on the right hand of the Father. We believe that He appeared alongside the Father to the prophet Joseph Smith. Today, He is at the head of our church and leads it through the prophet and twelve apostles. He will come again to reign upon the earth with all those who have faith in Him. Through Him, and Him alone, we can be forgiven for our sins and receive eternal live in the Kingdom of God. Show more

  • I go to college in what many people consider the "bible belt" of America. Many people assume I'm not a christian or that I don't believe in Jesus Christ as the literal Son of God. Most people don't realize just how christian our faith is and they're usually surprised at how similar many of our beliefs are. The truth is Jesus Christ is the Son of God and there is no other name by which people can be saved. Jesus Christ is my savior and the Savior of the world. His goodness is available to all and brings happiness to anyone who reaches out to Him. Show more

  • I want to answer this by explaining how I came to believe in Christ. If it were not for the Holy Ghost it would be hard to see the Savior as anything other than an imaginary friend, or even see the scriptures as more than mythological tales. Since scripture promised revelation, I asked of God if these things were true. It helped to have some idea of how I would get an answer. The scriptures were spot on in the description of such communication, and I felt a powerful sensation in my heart. I think the vast majority of Latter-Day Saints have received their testimony of Christ this way. The Holy Ghost’s witness gives us the drive to believe those Prophets who have seen the Christ. Even Peter needed the Holy Ghost’s witness of Jesus. That is why I believe Jesus is the Son of God. That’s all I have to go on. So, every day I read in the scriptures, ponder some ideas presented, and look for that sensation in my heart. And every day in some way, I see more value in virtue and love. I see what Christ was teaching us to be, and I choose that life style. In John 14 Jesus was teaching all of us that this is how we would know Him as well as God. This approach makes us think, seek understanding, and grow in faith till we can know all things.

  • Jesus Christ is the absolute center of our faith. This is why the official name of the church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, bears His name. Everything we teach in Church leads to Christ and His Atonement. It is through Christ that we are able to repent and return to live with our Heavenly Father. It is through Christ that miracles still happen. It is through Christ that all things are possible if it be the will of God. We believe that Jesus is our Heavenly Father's eldest Son, which qualified Him to be our Savior. Mormons, or LDS members, believe that Christ, our Heavenly Father, and the Holy Ghost make of the Godhead as three distinct and separate Beings, who all work together for the same goal: to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. They love us so much. It was out of the greatest love for us that our Savior atoned for us and died so that we might live again. There was a dark time in my life when I seriously wondered if God and Christ really loved me. After wading through that trial, I have come to absolutely know for myself that our Heavenly Father, and our elder brother Jesus Christ absolutely love us. Their love for us, unlike our love, is perfect and unconditional. I absolutely know that. It is through Christ that we obtain the strength to overcome our sins and flaws. Because Christ was resurrected, we too will one day after death reunite with our bodies, only our bodies will be perfect. Show more
