Things that I Believe
It seems like this song is attempting to point out some more “ridiculous” beliefs held by Latter-day Saints (like those mentioned in the section above), but not all the beliefs pointed out are so peripheral. Some of the beliefs mentioned below are quite central to our faith.
- I believe that the Lord, God, created the universe
- I believe that He sent His only Son to die for my sins – Jesus Christ, Our Savior
- I believe that ancient Jews built boats and sailed to America – The Book of Mormon
- I believe that God has a plan for all of us – God’s Plan of Happiness
- I believe that the current President of the Church, Thomas Monson, speaks directly to God – The Restoration of the Gospel
For more on these beliefs, see Preach My Gospel chapter 3. That chapter contains the missionary lessons on the Restoration, the Plan of Salvation, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
