Is the Church of Mormon a Christian Church?

Yes. Mormons believe in the divine nature of Jesus and know that it is only in and through Him that we may become worthy to live with God. Mormons look to the life of Christ and his teachings as a perfect example of how we should live. We look to the atonement and crucifixion of Christ as the ultimate sacrifice for sin that was made on our behalf.

A scripture contained in the Book of Mormon (a companion scripture to the Bible) states:

2 Nephi 25: 26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.

The actual name of the church is The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The name Mormon is a nick name given to the church because of their belief in a book of scripture called the Book of Mormon. The church believes this book of scripture to be a companion to the Bible, not a replacement.

Think of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as represented by a board nailed to a wall. The nail represents the Bible. With a single nail through the board, it can be turned in many directions. This represents the different interpretations that can be made of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Those different interpretations is what has caused the diversity of different Christian faiths. Some interpret a specific verse to mean one thing, where another church might interpret it completely differently and base their dogma of their church on that understanding. To members of the Mormon church, the Book of Mormon represents a second nail in that board which solidifies the board and removes the chance of turning it. The Book of Mormon testifies of the Savior Jesus Christ, and is held side by side with the Bible in the interpretation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
