The Mormon Doctrine of Eternal Progression
The doctrine of eternal progression is central to Mormon beliefs and practices.

Mormon teachings perhaps are best summarized in the words of fifth LDS president Lorenzo Snow: “As man is, God once was; as God is, man may become.” Many sources were helpful in putting this chart together, most significantly Utah Lighthouse Ministry.
