Question Box: Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

In a word, yes. Let me share a quote from one of the General Authorities, Donald L. Hallstrom, who spoke at this last weekend’s General Conference. He said,  “Born of a Heavenly Father, both spiritually and physically, [Jesus Christ] possessed the omnipotence to overcome the world. Born of an earthly mother, He was subject to the pain and suffering of mortality. The great Jehovah was also named Jesus and additionally was given the title of Christ, meaning the Messiah or Anointed One. His crowning achievement was the Atonement, wherein Jesus the Christ “descended below all things” (D&C 88:6), making it possible for Him to pay a redeeming ransom for each of us.”

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is the only way whereby mankind may be saved. I invite you to read more on this topic. Elder Hallstrom’s talk in its entirety can be found here, along with the rest of the wonderful talks we heard last weekend. You may also be interested in the following articles on this website:
