Is there multiple gods in Mormonism?

No, there is only one God in Mormonism. Mormons believe in a Godhead or Trinity consisting of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, who are three separate and distinct individuals, yet one God.

Mormons believe that God the Father and Jesus Christ are “separate, distinct beings” and God the Father is the literal father of Jesus Christ’s spirit. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are collectively known as the Godhead.

While Mormons believe that all three members of the Godhead are unified in purpose, will, and love, they also do not believe that they are the same person or entity. Each has distinct roles and duties in carrying out the work of salvation.

How many gods are in the Mormon religion?

The Mormon religion (or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) does not have a single, unified view of God. Different denominations within Mormonism and individuals may have different perspectives on the divine.

According to traditional Mormon beliefs, there is a Heavenly Father, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. Together they are the Godhead, the three separate and distinct divine beings. Mormonism also teaches that there is an organized assembly of innumerable spirits called Gods, Heavenly Fathers, and Elohims, who are in line with the Heavenly Father.

These many Gods and Goddesses make up the Council of Heavenly Hosts and are responsible for governing the universe. This is a version of polytheism, rather than the traditional monotheism of other Christian religions.

So, there is no single definitive answer to the question of how many gods are in the Mormon religion, however many people believe a minimum of three, with the potential for many more within the Council of Heavenly Hosts.
