Often members of the LDS church are asked what we believe. Obviously we believe in God and Jesus Christ (we ARE called The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints). But there is so much more than that. Before the Prophet Joseph Smith died he wrote down the 13 Articles of Faith which summarize our basic beliefs. I will share them with you one by one (not all at one time!) and give my thoughts and testimony.
The first Article of Faith is We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
That is pretty self explanatory. We believe that God and Jesus Christ are 2 separate persons with bodies like us. The Holy Ghost is not a person.
Before I joined the church I was raised Catholic so I have always had a belief in God and Jesus Christ. I know that God answers my prayers. I know that Jesus came to earth to atone for our sins and died so that we may have eternal life. I am grateful and blessed to have God and Jesus in my life.
