Alma 11:43

The Resurrection is literal.

43 The spirit and the body shall be reunited again in its perfect form; both limb and joint shall be restored to its proper frame, even as we now are at this time; and we shall be brought to stand before God, knowing even as we know now, and have a bright recollection of all our guilt.

The Prophet Joseph Smith said:

“Would you think it strange if I relate what I have seen in vision in relation to this interesting theme? . . . So plain was the vision, that I actually saw men, before they had ascended from the tomb, as though they were getting up slowly. They took each other by the hand and said to each other, ‘My father, my son, my mother, my daughter, my brother, my sister.’ . . . They are by my side; I embrace them and they me. . . . By the vision of the Almighty I have seen it. . . . God has revealed His Son from the heavens and the doctrine of the Resurrection also; and we have a knowledge that those we bury here God will bring up again, clothed upon and quickened by the Spirit of the Great God.”

(History of the Church, 5:361–62.)
