Basic Mormon Beliefs

Welcome to Basic Mormon Beliefs. This site is intended to answer many questions people have about Mormons, to clarify Mormon teachings and to clear up any confusion as to what we believe.

I am a practicing member of the Mormon church, and throughout my years, I’ve discovered that often times people have big misconceptions of what we believe in. I created this website in hopes to answer many of those questions and to share my testimony of Jesus Christ.
