Yup.  Which is a lot of what the Gospel seems to be about, it seems to
me.  Which is (our self-improvement) secondary to our acceptance (not
necessarily our understanding) of the Atonement.  After all, perfecting
the Saints is one of our goals (and that includes perfecting ourselves),
along with redeeming the dead and proclaiming the Gospel.  But even the
mission of the Church comes after the acceptance of the Atonement itself.

Sort of off-topic, it's awe-inspiring to me that the Church fixedly sets
its (our) sights on goals which all Church leaders and most members agree
are literally impossible.  Not only do we have to have faith that the
Savior will cause these goals to be ultimately reached, we have to have
faith that we will never see the goals obtained in our lifetimes.
