31 Days of Faith {We Believe 1...}

"We believe in God the eternal Father 
and in his Son, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost..."

Some common misconceptions about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is that we aren't Christians and that we don't believe in God. The first tenet of our faith is professing our belief in God and Jesus irregardless of the official name of the Church. One difference is that we believe members of the God head are separate beings but one in purpose   This is bothersome to some thinking that we believe in many gods, or polytheism. I just look to the scriptures and read the account of Christ's baptism in the River Jordan. After he had come up out of the water, Heavenly Father declared from Heaven, "this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

We pray to one God, with Christ making intercession for the Father.  We begin our prayers quite formally, "Dear Heavenly Father, or Dear Father..."  and they typically close "in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.  Or perhaps, in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, Amen." Of course everything else in between is perhaps what we are grateful for, those we are praying for and things that we may need.
