Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God. His birth, life, death, and resurrection fulfilled the many prophecies contained in the scriptures concerning the coming of a Savior. He was the Creator, He is our Savior, and He will be our Judge.
Under the direction of our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created the earth.
When Jesus lived on the earth, He led a perfect life. He taught by word and example how people should live in love of God and others.
Through His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and by giving His life on the cross-that is, by performing the Atonement-Jesus Christ saves us from our sins as we follow Him. Because of the Atonement, you can be forgiven of your sins when you sincerely repent.
Through His Resurrection, Jesus Christ saved us from death. Because He overcame death, we will all be given the gift of resurrection, that is to say our spirits will be eternally re-united with our bodies. When life on this earth is over, Jesus Christ will be the final Judge.
