The Mormon Transhumanist Association is an organisation promoting Mormon, Christian transhumanism founded by Lincoln Cannon. They are affiliated with Humanity+.[1]

The term 'Transfigurism' has been coined to indicate the advocacy of change in form has found in many different religious texts as a concept that may relate many forms of religious transhumanism.[1]

A core declaration of principles is the Mormon Transhumanist Affirmation[2] which states:

1. We seek the spiritual and physical exaltation of individuals and their anatomies, as well as communities and their environments, according to their wills, desires and laws, to the extent they are not oppressive.

2. We believe that scientific knowledge and technological power are among the means ordained of God to enable such exaltation, including realization of diverse prophetic visions of transfiguration, immortality, resurrection, renewal of this world, and the discovery and creation of worlds without end.

3. We feel a duty to use science and technology according to wisdom and inspiration, to identify and prepare for risks and responsibilities associated with future advances, and to persuade others to do likewise.
