One thing I'd like to publicly say that I really appreciate about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is just how much of what they teach can be resolutely affirmed by many Evangelical Christians. Most of the time, Evangelicals emphasize those especially distinctive LDS views on, e.g., the nature of God. And I'm not at all saying that these things are unimportant; I think many of them are very important divergences. But my focus here is on the high degree of commonality that we also have.
Latter-day Saints and Evangelicals both profess belief in and devotion to the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob; and to this God, we ascribe the creation of the physical cosmos in which we dwell and accept that this God is the governor of it. Both of us express devotion to the Godhead - Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Both of us belief firmly and resolutely in the personal distinctions between these three. Both of us believe, in some way, in the true deity of the Son. In fact, both of us are likely to be in agreement - in opposition to Jehovah's Witnesses and other modern-day Arian groups - that before becoming flesh, Jesus appeared to ancient Israel as Jehovah.
Both of us believe that humanity is especially loved by God, loved in ways that we can scarcely fathom. Both of us believe that God intends us to dwell in his presence. Many Evangelicals can also gladly join Latter-day Saints in affirming that, in order to have the opportunity to authentically love God, we have the gift of free agency (or, free will). Both of us believe that humanity sinned and turned our backs on God. And both of us believe that humanity is ideally destined for an endless future so bright and glorious that we can't yet imagine the half of it.
We also both believe that the Bible as originally given is a revelatory record of God's dealings with humanity, the unfolding saga of his redemptive activities. We believe in the truths it reveals about God and about ourselves. We believe the words of the prophets whom God sent to ancient Israel. We both believe that, at just the right time, the Creator condescended to take up a mortal body in the womb of Mary, and hence is truly human in at least as strong a sense as we are truly human. We believe that Jesus is the Messiah who was promised by God long ago. We believe that he taught the truth in his ministry in first-century Palestine, and that he paid the heavy price for our sins during a long ordeal ending in his crucifixion. We both believe that, in our state, we could not be saved apart from this atonement, which is an expression of God's grace. We believe that, on the third day after his crucifixion, he was physically raised from the dead, restored to physically embodied and indeed transformed life. We believe that he really appeared to his disciples, and that he then ascended into heaven and sent the Holy Ghost to them to empower them for the mission that we both take very seriously: make disciples of all nations. And we both believe that a people of God was to be gathered, and that this people will someday witness Jesus' return to judge the world (and to hold every human accountable for the life he or she has lived) and bring his followers into a kingdom of glory.
We both believe that we must repent of our sins and believe in Jesus as the Messiah and risen Lord who saves us from our sins and their dire consequences. We both believe in the importance of being baptized in imitation of Christ's death and resurrection, and in the other sacrament whereby we remember Christ's atoning death for us. We both believe that we may receive the Holy Ghost to dwell within us and among us as a foretaste of the age to come. We both believe in the importance of gathering together to meet as fellow believers in all of these things, and in helping one another, teaching one another, and building one another up. And we both believe in the importance of enduring until the end - whether that end be our own personal departure from this mortal body, or the return of Christ.
Those are essentially all things that, so far as I know, virtually all Latter-day Saints and all Evangelicals can affirm unashamed. This is the foundation that we share in common. Unless I am on some point mistaken, there is nothing in this list that would be considered erroneous by most Latter-day Saints or most Evangelicals. And, for all that does divide us - and, as I said, my focus at the moment is not on those - this is a considerable overlap that should give us at the least a solid prima facie reason to treat one another with respect and acknowledge the rich treasure of truth in one another's beliefs. For my part, I appreciate all on which I can gladly stand together with Latter-day Saints in affirming these truths.
