Central to Latter-day Saint belief is the divinity of Jesus Christ. He is regarded as the Son of God and the Saviour of the world. Christ atoned for mankind's sins, subject to our repentance. Through his great resurrection, all mankind will also be resurrected. God the Father, like the Son, is an immortal being who has a body of flesh and bones. The Church teaches that men and women were created as spirit beings prior to this life by God the Father. This life is a training period for God's children. They come to this earth to receive a physical body and are given agency to make decisions. Through life's experiences, individuals can learn Godlike qualities and eventually return to live with him.
