While our backgrounds and experiences are diverse, we share a deep commitment to Jesus Christ, to each other, and our neighbors. Watch these stories of faith in the everyday lives of Mormons. You can also meet Mormons here.
Our faith influences nearly every aspect of our lives. Beyond simply believing in Jesus Christ, we try to bring His teachings to life at home, at work and in our communities. Here are a few of the cultural priorities embraced by members of the Church around the world.
We are all spiritual children of a loving
Heavenly Father who sent us to this earth to learn and grow in a mortal state. As Mormons,
we are followers of Jesus Christ. We live our lives
to serve Him and teach of His eternal plan for each of us.
Jesus Christ. The longest serving Apostle at the time the President of the Church dies is the President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and becomes thereby the de facto Head of the Church. When the Quorum of the Twelve then reorganizes the First Presidency, that senior Apostle becomes President of the Church. There is no question about that. The choice as to which Apostles will become or not become a President of the Church is decided when Christ calls an Apostle initially by revelation through a previous President of the Church. Christ knows who will live to become the Head of the Priesthood. That's how it works.

You find out for yourself! People can testify to you, but ultimately it's a choice each individual person must make. Studying the scriptures and praying are great ways to start. It's all about how you feel. When you read or hear something and you think to yourself "Well that makes sense" or "Yeah, that seems right" then you're building a testimony! Those feelings are the Holy Ghost speaking to you, and it is through the Holy Ghost that you can confirm for yourself if the Book of Mormon and Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are true.
