Jesus Christ, Savior and Redeemer of the World

Page history last edited by Jess 9 years, 11 months ago

 

As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, one of the most common misconceptions we are faced with is that we are not Christians. We are here to testify that that is not the case.

 

We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. - Articles of Faith 1:1

 

The Bible Dictionary offers an excellent explanation of what we believe about Jesus Christ and who He is:

 

Jesus, who is called Christ, is the firstborn of the Father in the spirit and the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh. He is Jehovah, and was foreordained to his great calling in the Grand Councils before the world was. He was born of Mary at Bethlehem, lived a sinless life, and wrought out a perfect atonement for all mankind by the shedding of his blood and his death on the cross. He rose from the grave and brought to pass the bodily resurrection of every living thing and the salvation and exaltation of the faithful.

 

He is the greatest Being to be born on this earth - the perfect example - and all religious things should be done in his name. He is Lord of lords, King of kings, the Creator, the Savior, the God of the whole earth, the Captain of our salvation, the Bright and Morning Star. He is in all things, above all things, through all things, and round about all things; he is Alpha and Omega, the first and the last; his name is above every name, and is the only name under heaven by which we can be saved.

 

He will come again in power and glory to dwell on the earth, and will stand as Judge of all mankind at the last day.

I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and I am eternally grateful that He was willing to suffer and die for my sins. We mortals are weak, and without His divine assistance, none of us would have the opportunity to return to live with our Heavenly Father for all eternity. I am so grateful that God's Plan of Salvation provided a way for ALL of His children to return to live with Him if we accept the Atonement of His Son, Jesus Christ and live worthy of its blessings.
