We believe that there is a God. God is our loving Heavenly Father who knows us personally. We are all his children. He cares about us and knows the struggles that we go through. God is perfect, all righteous and all knowing. He is full of love, mercy, charity, truth, power and knowledge. All good things come from God and everything he does is to help us, His children, to become like him. He says, “Behold, this is my work and my glory – to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” (Moses 1:39)
It is important to know who God is and to have a personal relationship with Him. We can build this relationship with God by doing the following.
- Believe that He exists and that He loves us (Mosiah 4:9)
- We need to study the scriptures (2 Timothy 3:14-17)
- Pray to Him (James 1:5)
- Obey his Commandments (John 14:21-23)
As we do these things, we will come to know God and become closer to Him.
