Learn about Mormonism
Mormons believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as restored on the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith, is the path to happiness in this life and life eternal. We believe that many churches, even non Christian churches, have part of the truth that can bring us back to live with God and Jesus Christ after this mortal life is over. However, we also believe that the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is only found in the teaching of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church). We know that these teachings can make a difference in your life . . . for the better. We want to share what we know with you and hope you will take advantage of this knowledge. Mormonism has been defined in different ways but in this website the term Mormonism is used to explain the beliefs and practices of the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) and Mormon beliefs according to Mormon religion. There are other groups who may call themselves Mormons, but they are not affiliated to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have different beliefs. In this site we will not discuss their beliefs directly. Why Mormonism? is meant to be an opportunity for those who are interested in knowing more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church or Mormon Church). This site is divided in sections that should help you explore Mormonism, starting from the basic principles to more advanced topics with the purpose of giving you a better understanding of what Mormons really believe. On the Internet we can find many websites that are run by critics of the Mormon Church who insist in telling us and others what Mormons believe or don’t believe. In many cases they don’t give us the proper information. We wonder why they spend so much time trying to explain what Mormons believe and Mormon Religion teaches, instead of more clearly explaining what they themselves believe. It would be a better use of their time. This site is not directly affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the ideas and opinions expressed here are not endorsed by the Church or its leadership. However, it is run by true members of the same LDS Church and it provides our perspective on Mormonism.
