Who is Jesus Christ

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God (Matthew 16:15-16)  and was foreordained before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:20).

A modern-day Apostle, President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says this regarding Jesus Christ…

“I cannot with composure tell you how I feel about the Atonement. It touches the deepest emotion of gratitude and obligation. My soul reaches after Him who wrought it—this Christ, our Savior, of whom I am a witness. I testify of Him. He is our Lord, our Redeemer, our Advocate with the Father. He ransomed us with His blood.

“Humbly I lay claim upon the Atonement of Christ. I find no shame in kneeling down in worship of our Father and His Son. For agency is mine, and this I choose to do!”

Joseph Smith said this regarding Jesus Christ and the Mormon religion…

“The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it.”  See Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith (2007), 49.
