God the Father resides in heaven with His wife, the Heavenly Mother; Christ, their only begotten Son; and “exalted” Mormons, who become God-like in heaven. God has a perfect body, which looks like ours. Jesus is Lord and Savior; God of this earth; creator of all in heaven and earth as directed by God the Father; one in purpose with the Father and the Holy Spirit–a Godhead of three separate members. Based on one’s record of thoughts, words, and actions, righteous believers will live in a state of paradisiacal happiness. Unbelievers and sinners in spirit prison will live in misery, but they are provided the opportunity to repent, accept the gospel, receive ordinances performed for them by the living, and thus move to the lowest level of heaven. At the Final Judgment and Resurrection, most will be assigned to a one of three kingdoms of heaven where spiritual growth continues. Only a few, the most wicked sinners, will suffer eternal torture in the outer darkness, as most will have accepted the gospel and suffered for their sins enough by the end of the Millennium. Humans did not inherit guilt or a sinful nature from Adam and Eve’s original sin.
