STATISTICS, FAQ


Who are 'Mormons'?  Mormons are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe our church is the same as the original church Jesus established when He was on the earth (see Ephesians 2:19-20, 4:11-14). The name 'Mormon' is a nickname because of the Church's belief in the Book of Mormon.  

Are Mormons Christian?  Yes! We believe in Jesus Christ. He is the Savior of the world, our Redeemer, and our great Example. He overcame death. He paid the price of our sins (John 3:16). He is the literal Son of God. Our Church bears His name—the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—and we proclaim His name in all the world.

Are you Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant?  We are pleased to work closely with these Christian religions and others. But we are not part of these groups and we did not split off from any of them. We believe our church is the restored Church of Jesus Christ, a revealed renewal of the Lord's original church. In Lebanon we are recognized as a religious and service association.

Do you believe in the Bible?  Yes! We believe, revere and love the Holy Bible. It is a powerful and sacred holy record which serves as the bedrock of all Christianity. The Bible is the word of God and came from the writings of holy men of God as they were moved upon by the Holy Ghost (see 2 Peter 1:20-21). Through the same process we have additional Holy Scripture, including the Book of Mormon, which supports and exalts the Bible.

Who are your members?  Here in Lebanon we have a growing congregation of people who represent Lebanon's many cultures. We speak Arabic, English, French and other languages. We work in many trades and professions. We are friendly and we welcome everyone to worship with us. Worldwide, our 15 million members are found in nearly all countries and territories.

Who are your leaders?  Our leaders are not paid. They come from the congregation and are called of God by inspiration to fill different responsibilities. We all participate, teach, learn, and serve together. Our services are simple and blessed by the Holy Spirit.
