Eternal Families


Families are central in LDS beliefs. We believe the family is Heavenly Father's divine institution for earth life and beyond. In 1995, church leaders published a proclamation detailing these beliefs. Entitled, The Family: A Proclamation to the World, or more generally known as the Proclamation on the Family, you can access the document on the Church's official website.
