LDS faith, Are we Christians?

A lot of people question whether the LDS people are Christian. I know they just don't understand the religion, and that is totally fine. 
No judgement here at all, I just came across a scripture this morning that I loved, and would like to keep in my heart. 
I just wanted to share :

In the Book of Mormon, there is a book written by Jacob, an ancient prophet. He puts it very well. 

Jacob 1:7
"Wherefore we labored diligently among our people, that we might persuade them to come unto Christ, and partake of the goodness of God, that they might enter into his rest,"

Then my favorite part:
Jacob 1:8
"Wherefore, we would to God that we could persuade all men not to rebel against God, to provoke him to anger, but that all men would believe in Christ, and view his death, and suffer his cross and bear the shame of the world;"

This is the foundation of our religion. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I am grateful for his example he gave throughout his life, but most of all I am grateful for his unconditional love and atonement for my sins. He is my brother. He is my Best Friend. He is my mediator. He is my master.
