Are Mormons Christians?

mormons are Christians they believe in Jesus Christ
Are Mormons Christians? Yes! As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I humbly declare that I believe in Jesus Christ. Mormons are Christians who have a profound love for the Savior of the world.

Our church is named after Him, and it is through His Atonement that we believe all humankind can be saved.

There are some that would say otherwise, but be not mistaken, Mormons are Christian. Everything we do in our church, and everything we do in our lives, centers around Jesus Christ.

The founding prophet of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith, taught that Jesus Christ is the core of our belief, and everything else is an appendage to it (see Elders’ Journal, July 1838, 44).

As a Mormon, I believe in Jesus Christ. And like all Christians, I have found great joy in reading from the Holy Bible. Some of my favorite passages are found within the Four Gospels of The New Testament. I love the unique perspectives each of the four gospel writers brings to the life of Jesus Christ.

Sometimes, these different perspectives can cause confusion or even appear contradictory. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to bring all the texts together into one combined document. In Part 1, I present the events of the Last Supper, the Savior in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Jesus by Judas. I’ve included a portion of the text below, but to get the full effect, you should read the color-coded version. You can download the full, color-coded version PDF here.
