There are so many myths about our church, that we don't know where to start. The main focus of our religion is that we know that JesusChrist is our Savior, so that makes us Christians. The name of the church simply explains: 'The Church of JesusChrist of Latter-Day Saints," its His church, not the church of Mike & Ally, church of Mormon, Church of Utahns, or the church of Joseph Smith, but the Church of Christ.
We believe that through JesusChrist, and only Him is that we are saved. We follow His teachings, we try to serve, to keep his commandments, to live according to all things that he taught: service, love one another, humility, forgiveness, obedience, morality, etc. We are not perfect, but we try to be like Him. We are baptized as he was, we partake of the sacramental bread and water every sunday, just like he imparted to his apostles during the last supper. We believe in apostles, we believe in revelation as He taught Peter or Paul (Ephesians 1:17). We believe He was resurrected, and that He lives.
There is a Scripture in the Book of Mormon that describes our Religion: "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins" (2 Nephi 25:26) We know that Christ is our Savior. We know He is the resurrected son of God. We know there is an eternal plan, and that there is a specific purpose for everyone. Every human being it is a son and daughter of God, because he created us spiritually, and He created our first parents physically. And we know that if we try our best to live righteous lives, then after all our efforts, Christ by his grace will cleanse us, and then we will be prepared to live in the presence of our Father in Heaven, which is God, with our families for ever more.

Repentance is the second principle of the gospel. Our faith in Jesus Christ and our love for Him lead us to repent, or to change our thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are not in harmony with His will and teachings. When we sincerely repent of our sins the Lord forgives us and remembers them no more.
Doctrine and Covenants 58:42
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Baptism is a holy ordinance through which we covenant with the Lord to accept Jesus as our Savior and to keep His commandments. In return, God promises to forgive us of our sins as we repent and to bless us with His Spirit."- Holy Bible, John 3:5
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Those who receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and remain worthy can enjoy His companionship throughout their lives. The Holy Ghost provides direction and comfort and testifies of truth. -Holy Bible, John 14:26For more visit: Mormon.org, JesusChrist.lds.org
