The idea that God is not an intangible force or idea, but instead has a form like a person, with a body–is very powerful. Understanding God’s nature helps us to correctly understand his relationship with us. It’s hard to imagine an intangible, undefined force loving us, but it’s much easier to understand that God, with a form like ours, loves us like a parent, and sees us as his children.  This is one of the fundamental, basic beliefs of Mormonism that separate it from other Christian faiths(of which Mormonism is one). Most other Christians believe that God, Christ, and the Holy Ghost are one being, taking on different forms at different times. Identifying God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost as distinct beings is fairly unique to Mormonism.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a Christian faith, in that it teaches that a belief in Jesus Christ and his teachings and actions is the only way to gain salvation. However, many churches traditionally described as Christian would disagree with that attribution (Mormonism being a Christian faith), mostly due to a lack of understanding of Mormon theology, or in some cases, disagreement with it.

For additional information and scriptural references about who God is, please see below:

Genesis 1:26-27 — God created us in his image.

Acts 17:28-29 — We are God’s children.

D&C 130:22 — God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are separate beings.

Matthew 3:13-17 — The baptism of Christ–God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost are all present.

(References come from the Book of Mormon, the Bible, the Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price–all canonical scripture for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.)
