No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) has never denied people membership into their church. All people from all walks of life have always been accepted through baptism if they are willing to demonstrate a willingness to follow Jesus Christ and the guidelines of the Church. Mormons have been persecuted for their doctrinal and moral beliefs which differ from the popular culture, such as belief in scripture in addition to the Bible, modern prophets, salvation for the deceased, strict chastity, and clean living.


Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) and Lutherans share many common beliefs. Both groups believe that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the only way that mankind can receive Salvation. Both believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Both also believe that salvation comes in and through Jesus Christ. Both believe in the communion or Lord's supper (Mormons call it 'the sacrament') and both believe in baptism - although they might differ in how these ordinances are performed.


We are in many aspects Christian, but many of our beliefs differ from those of traditional Christans sects.


They could be called several things from "dissenter" to "heretic" depending on how severely the beliefs differ.


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (commonly called "Mormons") and I am not aware of any official Church opinions on operation therapies, only personal ones (which differ from person to person). The Church and it's members fully support modern heathcare and members choose any healthcare options they want.


The Anglican Church is also known as the Church of England or the Episcopal Church. There are two main differences between the Anglican Church and Baptist Churches. First they differ on Church government, or "who makes the decisions?". Secondly they differ on the mode and subjects of baptism or "who should be baptised and how?" Both types of church are Christian, they worship Jesus Christ as Son of God and Saviour. They also base their beliefs on the Bible.

"Mormons" are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church has over 15 million baptized members worldwide, and these members come from nearly every nationality, culture, status, and background. While Mormons might differ physically and temporally, they are united in their faith. Mormons are Restorationist Christians, meaning that they believe their church is the true New Testament Christian Church restored (rather than continued or reformed) in modern times. The doctrines and authority of the original Christianity were restored to the prophet Joseph Smith through visitations by Jesus Christ, Peter, James, John the Beloved, John the Baptist, and other Biblical figures. Mormons share most beliefs and practices with other Christians, but also have some unique doctrines, including modern prophets, additional scripture, and temple ceremonies.Mormons tend to be very open and excited to share their faith with anyone interested. You can visit their official website, Mormon.org, to learn more about the faith and to get in contact with Mormons near you.


Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) are Christian, but they are not Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant Christians. Most scholars classify them as 'Restorationist Christians', because Mormons claim to be a restoration of First-Century New Testament Christianity. Mormons are Christians because they believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and accept Him as their personal Savior. They believe that Bible is the Word of God and are instructed to study it daily. At baptism, they take upon themselves the name of Christ and promise to always follow His example. However, Mormons differ from mainstream Christianity in several ways. They do not accept the traditional "three gods in one" Trinity, but believe that God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are three seperate beings. They also believe in scripture additional to the Bible and that God continues to speak through prophets today.


"Mormonism" is a nickname for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mormonism is a Restorationist Christian denomination which believes that true Biblical Christianity had to be restored to the earth by Jesus Christ Himself, not reformed from the Catholic Church. Mormons believe that this happened in the early 1800's, when Jesus Christ personally appeared to Joseph Smith and restored to him the doctrines, practices, and authority of the original first century Christian church. Mormons differ from other Christian groups in several ways: -Mormons believe that God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three separate individuals perfectly united in purpose, they do not believe in the traditional "three in one" Trinity. -Mormons believe there is scripture in addition to the Bible. They use the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price as scripture. -Mormons believe that God continues to reveal His will to mankind today through a living Prophet and twelve living Apostles. -Mormons believe that those who die without accepting Jesus Christ are not lost. They perform baptisms on behalf of their deceased ancestors, believing that this gives that ancestor the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ before the Final Judgement. -Mormons believe that marriages and families continue beyond the grave. Marriage is considered an eternal union, not 'until death do us part.' Mormons are always eager to share their beliefs with others.

Yes, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) do believe in heaven and hell, although their beliefs differ from most mainstream Christians. Mormons believe that the vast majority of people will go to one of the three levels of heaven. They believe that only those who had a sure faith in God and Jesus Christ and then denied that faith (apostates) will go to hell (which is usually called 'Outer Darkness'). All others will go to some level of heaven. Mormons base their belief in the three levels of heaven on 2 Corinthians 12:2 and 1 Corinthians 15:40, as well as modern teachings of Joseph Smith, which are found in the Doctrine and Covenants of the Church. You can read from the Doctrine and Covenants about the levels of heaven or learn more from other sources at the "Related Links" below.


The Mormons, the Catholics.... Some denominations, such as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the United Church of Christ, or the Buddhist Church, have in their belief systems that they have no monopoly on the truth. The nature of this question could lead to debate or argument. In an effort to quell that before it begins, this answer is an attempt at objectivity. People's religious beliefs are usually such that they believe that they have the right or best perspective. If they did not feel this way, they would not subscribe to the particular religion or church they do. While their individual beliefs might differ slightly from the doctrine or dogma of the church to which they belong or attend, it obviously represents the closest match to their personal faith. Therefore, every member of every religion known to man can say, "My church is the best." The fact is, no church is truly better than any other. Each can be best for the members of that church, but there is no overall "best." Best in this case is subjective. It can be a point of debate, it can be a matter for argument, has been in fact, but it need not be. The best response to this question then is that the "best church" is that one which is best for the individual choosing.


The Church of Christ was actually the name of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from 1830 until 1838. At this time Church members realized that there were several churches with the name "Church of Christ", and both to avoid confusion and comply with a revelation from God (now found in Doctrine and Covenants 115), they changed the name to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.Now, there are several Christian churches who use the name "Church of Christ" or something similar. Some branched out of the restorationism movement, as did the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and some did not. These "Church of Christ" groups differ from each other and from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Some are independent individual churches, and some are groups of churches or denominations.To compare some of the larger "Church of Christ" groups to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, click the "Related Links" below.


Yes. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) and the Catholic Church actually get along quite well, and pretty much always have. Of course they differ in many ways and acknowledge those differences, but they also recognize their similarities and work together in many areas where they share common goals. This is especially true in Utah, which has very large Mormon and Catholic populations. Check out the "Related Links" below to see some examples of Catholics and Mormons cooperating.


The "Firsts" is not a religion. If you are referring to a church with a name like "First Church of Christ" or "First Congregational Church", etc, that just means they were the first congregation of that denomination in the area. It is a name for a congregation, not the name of the religion or denomination. Most churches that will use the word "First" in their name belong to Protestant Christian denominations. These denominations differ from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "LDS" or "Mormon" Church) in many doctrinal details. The LDS Church is a Restored Christian denomination, meaning they believe that true Christianity had to be restored through a prophet, not reformed from the Catholics. The Church is lead by a prophet, uses the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon, and has different beliefs regarding salvation, the trinity, and priesthood than Protestant Christianity. Both groups believe that salvation comes only in and through the name of Jesus Christ. To learn more, visit the "Related Links" below.

The Muslim beliefs don't differ from the original/pure beliefs revealed to holy Christ (May peace and blessings of Lord be upon him). It was much later that certain beliefs were incorporated into Christianity by the Councils held under different Christian Kings. There is a hell of difference between what the Christan beliefs are and what the Christians practice. Unfortunately, this is also true in the case of some of the so-called Muslims.


Mormons are not "bad" any more than anyone else is. Many Christians do not consider Mormons to be Christians because some of their doctrines differ from what most Christian churches teach.



The Unity Church is a subset of Christianity, and follows the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ. They differ from many Christian sects in their belief that God is not a being, but rather a spiritual energy.


Yes. Some other churches and denominations do consider members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be Christian. Many individuals that may or may not be a part of these organizations also consider them to be Christian. Many of the Protestant organizations that do not consider Mormons to be Christian do not consider anyone who is not Protestant to be Christian, including Catholics or Eastern Orthodox Churches. Church members themselves consider themselves to be Christian but recognize that they do have differences. They do worship and follow Jesus Christ and read the Bible, but know that many other beliefs differ from mainstream Christianity. They do not consider themselves Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant, but they do consider themselves Christian. sister f. wasup im brother E. =) im from the julington creek ward you dont know me but hi. =)
