[Brigham Young]

We believe in God the Father and in Jesus Christ our elder brother. We believe that God is a person of tabernacle, possessing in an infinitely higher degree all the perfections and qualifications of his mortal children. We believe that he made Adam after his own image and likeness, as Moses testifies; and in this belief we differ from the professedly Christian world, who declare that '"His center is everywhere, but his circumference is nowhere.'" Their God has no body nor parts; our God possesses a body and parts, and was heard by Adam and Eve '"Walking in the garden in the cool of the day.'"
