Mormonism (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) - Is it Christian? (page 6)

The Future

Mormonism says: Although there is some form of punishment (possibly temporary) for those that are most wicked, Christ will usher in a kingdom that will consist of three levels by the end of the millennium: the celestial kingdom, the terrestrial kingdom, and the telestial kingdom. It is possible to advance within each of these kingdoms.

The Bible only speaks of two final fates for mankind: heaven or hell. And nothing is said of advancing in status in either location.
