We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.—Articles of Faith 1:1
The Articles of Faith were not the work of a team of scholars but were authored by a single, inspired man who declared comprehensively and concisely the essential doctrines of the gospel of Jesus Christ. —L. Tom Perry
