Mormons are definitely Christians. They believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Redeemer, and the head of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Prophet Joseph Smith wrote, “We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost” (Articles of Faith 1:1). As TRUE believers of Jesus Christ, Mormons honor Him and follow His examples throughout their lives. They remember the Savior, Jesus Christ, every day in thoughts, words, and deeds according to the covenants they made during baptism.
When I was investigating the church ten years ago, I also wondered if Mormons were Christians. I was looking for a satisfying answer to my question and then one Sunday I felt something uplift me as I sat at sacrament meeting. I listened to the sacrament prayers offered by one of the brethren and it pierced my heart. I realized that Jesus Christ is mindful of those “who remember Him always and keep His commandments” and they are blessed “to always have His Spirit to be with them” (Moroni 4-5). It deeply touched my whole being that day. Peace and joy were revived.
I am a child of God and I believe that He has a plan for each of us. I believe Jesus Christ is the founder and the ruler of the Church from the beginning until now. I know that Jesus Christ redeemed us from our fallen state. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and I am a Mormon.
