The Plan of Salvation in a Nutshell

For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, here is The Plan of Salvation in a nutshell. (With a really cool graphic to illustrate, isn’t that exciting?) Since this post is located in said nutshell, it is condensed and very basic. There is much more information to be had should you wish and the link at the end will take you to a phenomenal site should you want to see more.

We believe that Heavenly Father is the Father of our spirits. That we lived with Him as spirit children before we came to this Earth. In that place we learned about and chose to participate in His plan for us. He gave us the ability to choose and make decisions for ourselves. With that gift He also knew we were going to mess up and sin in a bazillion different ways while we were here. He provided a Savior to atone (pay the price so that justice isn’t robbed)for our sins if we would repent.  That Savior would also overcome death through the resurrection. There was only One who was perfect and strong enough to be able to do those things. Jesus was that One and he loved us so much that he did.

This earth life ends for everyone through death. Sometimes it comes early and sometimes after you have danced the “funky chicken” at your 100th birthday party, but it does come. At that point your spirit (really the you in you) lays down your body and goes to the Spirit World. There, people who were good and repentant go to paradise to rest and teach others, and the wicked go to Spirit Prison. Once that’s done everybody the good, bad, ugly, and silly alike will receive a perfected body through the Resurrection that Christ made possible.  

“At the time of the resurrection, our spirit and body will reunite, and we will be judged and received into a kingdom of glory. The glory we inherit will depend on the depth of our conversion and our obedience to the Lord's commandments. It will depend on the manner in which we have "received the testimony of Jesus" (D&C 76:51; see also D&C 76:74, 79, 101).
