The godhead of Mormonism is nothing like the Trinity of Christianity. Their belief in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is made up of exalted men and a spiritual force that can provide inspiration to members if they’re following the dictates of the Church. Every single core belief of Christianity was turned on its proverbial head with Joseph Smith’s new religion.
Their god (elohim) was spiritually begotten through a sexual union by his heavenly parents on another planet.
Their savior Jesus was also spiritually begotten through a sexual union by his father elohim before the creation of the universe. This makes Jesus their elder brother along with Lucifer, because everyone was spiritually begotten before creation.
We’ve listed some of the core beliefs of each godhead member, however, this is by no means an exhaustive list as Mormonism is an evolving religion.
New converts to Mormonism are never told the whole story of who they believe their god is, thus the low retention rate seen in its membership. More times than not converts turn inactive within a year of conversion.
We’ve also listed information about the Mormon Heavenly Mother. While she’s not officially recognized as a member of the Mormon godhead, she is recognized as an important element of how their god operates.
