Doctrine and Theology

As a Christian ecumenical movement, the center of Latter Day Saint/Mormon worship is Jesus Christ. Anyone with a testimony of Jesus Christ or looking to learn of Him is welcome to worship and learn with the Fellowship of Christ. We all learn and grow our own levels and we all should grow together in Christ.

The Doctrine of Christ

The Bible and the Book of Mormon give us Jesus’ doctrine clearly:

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” -Mark 1:15

And…

“Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you: I will declare unto you my doctrine… repent and believe in me. -3 Nephi 5:32-35 RAV, 11:31-34 OPV
