1. WE believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
2. WE believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.
3. WE believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
4. WE believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
5. WE believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

LDS Myths & Urban Legends
There are many rumors circulating through our wards and stakes. Some of them are about the Church, the Gospel, or things related to Mormonism. Others are more general in nature. Many of them are presented as spiritual experiences and are often quoted in sacrament meetings or sunday school classes. As a general rule, it is a good idea to be skeptical of these extraordinary claims. Of course, we do believe in modern prophecy and revelation, visions, healings, and all righteous workings of the Spirit, so we, as Latter-day Saints, must concede the possibility of modern miracles. However, if you want to see what kinds of myths and legends are out there that are just not true, visit the links below. Have fun!
