The Mormons speak of Jesus in their own words. The words match that of most Christian Faiths.

Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ's mother was Mary, His
father on earth was Joseph, that He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, and labored with Joseph as a carpenter. When he turned 30, He began
a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. He also organized His Church and gave His apostles "power and
authority" ( Luke 9:1 ) to assist in His work.
But what do we mean when we say He is the Savior of the world? The Redeemer? Each of these titles point to the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way
by which we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Jesus suffered and was crucified for the sins of the world, giving each of God’s children
the gift of repentance and forgiveness. Only by His mercy and grace can anyone be saved. His subsequent resurrection prepared the way for every person
to overcome physical death as well. These events are called the Atonement. In short, Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very
literally our Savior and Redeemer. In the future Jesus Christ will return to reign on earth in peace for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is the Son of
God, and He will be our Lord forever.
They are also Builders (MASONS
Jesus referred to the Builders who reject the Capstone. The Capstone is the Cornerstone, which is Christ. The question would be, "Do the Mormons
reject the Capstone?" It's hard to tell. All churches have differing doctrines, but there is only one Gospel.
This is what one Leader says:
"In bearing testimony of Jesus Christ, President Hinckley spoke of those outside the Church who say Latter-day Saints 'do not believe in the
traditional Christ.' 'No, I don't. The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak. For the Christ of whom I speak has
been revealed in this the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. He together with His Father, appeared to the boy Joseph Smith in the year 1820, and
when Joseph left the grove that day, he knew more of the nature of God than all the learned ministers of the gospel of the ages.'" (LDS Church News
Week ending June 20, 1998, p. 7)."
In this sense, I would say we are all a version of this difference in belief. We all have differing views. The thing that confuses the Mormon
religion is the same as that of the Muslim. In each of these religions, the reflection of Jesus comes from an angel that came to deliver a different
Gospel to them. The Bible warned of this.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!
The final word on this is to look at the Gospel they preach. This is hard to pin down since they have continuing revelation. Thankfully, their
doctrine has continued to come closer each year to the true gospel. There is no doubt they have learned from past mistakes.
Here is their current Gospel statement:
"The Gospel: “The ‘good news’ of God’s plan for the salvation of mankind. At the center of His plan is the Atoning sacrifice of His son Jesus
Christ, in whom alone salvation is possible. In its fulness, the gospel includes all of the commandments, principles, ordinances, and covenants
whereby human beings can be forgiven of sin, overcome the world, and attain immortality and eternal life in the kingdom of God.”
This is typical of any Christian church. If they embrace the chief cornerstone of the church, then they are following the Christian faith. The Bible
says to know them by their fruit. This indicates that it's all about what they do and not what they say.
