As of 2015, the home page of the website includes a link to JesusChrist.LDS.org, a section of the website that explicitly addresses the LDS beliefs about Jesus. This secondary page immediately presents several images of Jesus and a selection of videos to watch. More information and images of Jesus are available by clicking on the Jesus Christ link, located at the top of the page. Clicking on the other links at the top of the page reveal more images of Jesus and his disciples in different settings.

The images of Christ that appear on the website are very similar to the pictorial representations found in Christian art through the centuries. He is portrayed as a man who is both dignified and kind, with facial features that combine both Middle Eastern and European aesthetics. His hair, mustache and beard are brown, and he is dressed in traditional robes, sometimes including a head covering. While the disciples wear robes of varying colors, Jesus is wearing white.
