Why am I here on Earth?

You are not on Earth by accident. There is a purpose for your mortal existence. You are here to receive a physical body, gain experience, and develop divine attributes—like justice, mercy, and love.

God did not send you here without a plan. His plan is designed to bring you, and all His children, greater peace in this life—no matter what its trials—and eternal joy in the life to come. It is a plan of eternal salvation and happiness.

To partake of His plan, Heavenly Father invites you to:

Come to know and love Him and His Son, Jesus Christ
Learn to love others as He loves them.
Learn to choose right over wrong.
Commit yourself to Him through ordinances such as baptism.

You lived before being born

Before you were born, your spirit lived with God. This premortal life is sometimes referred to as the pre-existence.In this setting, you had the opportunity to grow, mature, and learn many eternal truths from our Heavenly Father. Yet you yearned to be more like Him.
Like any loving parent, God wants His children to progress. Heavenly Father understood that you could only progress to a certain point without the experience of mortality. He knew that you needed to:
Receive a physical body.
Gain experience from overcoming trials and temptations.
Learn to walk by faith.
Learn to choose between good and evil.
So your Heavenly Father instituted His plan to help you reach your divine potential.

You accepted God’s plan

Before this life, Heavenly Father presented His plan of salvation to all of His spirit children.

The plan would require us to leave God’s presence, enter mortality, and learn to “walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). We would receive a physical body. We would also be allowed to use our moral agency to choose right or wrong, which would help us grow.

Heavenly Father knew we would not always make correct choices. So He promised to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Saviour. Jesus would teach us how to live. He would also make it possible for us to repent and to be resurrected. Through His Atonement we could become more like God and ultimately return to live with Him again.

Not all of our Heavenly Father’s spirit children accepted His plan. Lucifer, with many others, rebelled and was cast out (Revelation 12:4, 9). But all those who would eventually come to Earth accepted the plan—and even “shouted for joy” (Job 38:7). You were among these.
