I’m a Mormon; so I believe in God, our Heavenly Father, in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost as three separate and distinct personages. They are one in purpose but individual in existence.
God is the father of our spirit.
God’s son, Jesus Christ, offered to be the perfect example for us. He was sinless, suffered for our sins, and then died and was resurrected on the third day.
By logic, this also means Jesus is our brother.
The Holy Ghost is a body of spirit. Through him, we pray to our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ. From His side, God uses this Holy Ghost for revelation and comfort.
Instead of referring to this as the Trinity, in which the three are understood to be one being, we refer to them as the Godhead.
Though the Godhead is made up of three distinct divine beings with certain different roles and characteristics, They are perfectly united in purpose. They work in harmony to help us come to know God, live righteously, be forgiven, and ultimately return to live with Them again. Together, They work “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).Come Unto Christ, churchofjesuschrist.org
To get even deeper, we also believe that we can become like God eventually.

Technically, we Mormons are officially members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and are to drop any name but that. Since many still run with the nickname of ‘Mormon,’ however, I will keep pace.
My other note is that I will keep to official doctrinal practices. I will add my own application of them, especially in response to comments.
My final note is that I LOVE discussing anything I write. Don’t be rude, obviously, but any and all queries or responses are welcome.
My final note beyond the final note is that I do not seek to convert anyone. I ought to, but am motivated by forming connections, answering curiosity, and straightening pictures. So, you’re safe.
