The Latter-Day Saints believe that because of Jesus' atonement, everyone eventually experiences resurrection; spirits and bodies are reunited and there is no such thing as death. In Mormon theology, the three separate entities of the Godhead are the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and they are one in purpose.

There are 13 articles of faith, and each has a primary lesson attached to it. Article 4's main lesson states that aside from faith in Jesus Christ, repentance and immersion baptism are necessary components of Mormon faith. Another is the laying on of hands to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

The Latter-Day Saints cite numerous texts to support these lessons, including various books of the Bible and the Book of Mormon.
