  1. Exaltation

    Exaltation or Eternal Life is a belief among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that mankind can return to live in God's presence and continue as families. Exaltation is often referred to as being a more literal belief in both the ancient and modern Christian doctrine of deification or divinization. Exaltation is often referred to in Mormonism as "eternal progression" and is believed to be what God desires for all humankind. The LDS Church teaches that, through the atonement of Jesus Christ, believers may become joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. The objective of adherents is to strive for purity and righteousness and to become one with Jesus, as Jesus is one with the Father. The Doctrine and Covenants contains a verse that states that those who are exalted will become like god and, thus, will inherit God's glory through Christ's atonement.
