How To Learn More About the Mormon Faith

Finding Basic Beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

'Learn' is the key word when exploring any faith that may be of interest. With the vast sea of information that we have in the Internet, more often than not, it is easy to get lost in gray lines of FACT of FICTION of any subject. In this article, I will explore ways to LEARN true facts about the LDS Church.

  1. Where can I find correct information about the LDS Church? There are a number of different ways to find information. Most common in our day and age is the usefulness of the Internet. Most religions, companies, and groups use the Internet to provide information for what they are. The LDS church utilizes this technique as well as others to make available information regarding beliefs, basic doctrines, and other frequently asked questions. Mormon.org is a church-sponsored website; it contains information as to what the common beliefs of the Church are, where and when meetings are held, and other helpful information.
  2. If I want to learn more than the basic information, what are other options? The LDS church offers a number of free items that are available on their website, such as free books (Bible, and Book of Mormon) and free DVDs that teach about beliefs. These can be obtained by visiting Mormon.org and clicking on the 'Basic Beliefs' tab at the top of the screen. There is also an option to 'Ask a Question' wherein you will be linked with a missionary in a live chat.
  3. Option of meeting with LDS Missionaries. The LDS Church puts a lot of focus on their missionary program. If your interest is peaked, you may request that 2 church Missionaries come meet with you. The church puts a lot of focus on their Missionary program. The Missionaries are young men and women that dedicate 2 years of their life to teaching the church's beliefs to others. They are more than willing to visit anyone of any faith and discuss basic beliefs. You may visit the aforementioned Mormon.org or LDS.org to request a visit from some LDS Missionaries.

When learning any new item, it is always important to distinguish fact from fiction. This may be done by keeping an open mind, and realizing that any preconceived notions may be false. In no way do I claim to be a Scholar on the topic. I am trying to provide positive and factual resources for curious individuals.
