Sacred Narratives

The Mormon tradition is rich in sacred narratives drawn from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, Mormon temple rituals, and the pioneer heritage of the Church.

Ultimate Reality and Divine Beings

Mormons believe in a three-member Godhead of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost and in the potential of human beings to become gods and goddesses. Mormons also believe in the reality of angels.

Human Nature and the Purpose of Existence

Mormons believe that human beings, while fallen and carnal, have the potential to grow in moral knowledge until they reach a state of godhood in the afterlife.

Suffering and the Problem of Evil

In the Mormon view, evil is a natural consequence of moral agency, and because agency is a prerequisite for existence, the possibility for evil is ever present.

Afterlife and Salvation

Mormons believe in a complex afterlife that involves a heaven with three degrees of glory in which nearly every person will receive salvation.
