The LDS Creation Model

Gods are created through heavenly procreation

  • “… our Heavenly Father called a Grand Council to present his plan for our progression... We learned that if we followed his plan, we would become like him. We would have a resurrected body; we would have all power in heaven and on earth; we would become heavenly parents and have spirit children just as he does (see D&C 132:19-20).” Gospel Principles, Chapter 2, “Our Heavenly Family”

The LDS church teaches that when people follow God's plan, they can progress to become gods. Once Gods, they can become heavenly parents and produce spirit children.1 Likewise, these spirit children can progress to godhead in a virtually endless process.

  1. "Our Heavenly Father Presented a Plan for Us to Become like Him

    Since we could not progress further in heaven, our Heavenly Father called a Grand Council to present his plan for our progression (see Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 348, 349, 365). We learned that if we followed his plan, we would become like him. We would have a resurrected body; we would have all power in heaven and on earth; we would become heavenly parents and have spirit children just as he does (see D&C 132:19-20)." Gospel Principles, 1997. Chapter 2 “OUR HEAVENLY FAMILY”
