"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God,
the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall
ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest
the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."

-----Moroni 10:4

 


The Word of Wisdom

The "Word of Wisdom" means:

No Tobacco
No Strong Drinks
No Tea {Herbal Only}
No Caffiene
Use Meat Sparingly
Use Grains
Eat Fruits

The Lord said, "And all Saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking with the commandments, shall recieve health in their navel and marrow in their bones."

We believe that our bodies are temples, and that we must take care of them. In the same aspect, we must obey the commandments to have the spirit be invited to guide and direct us through life.

There are many scriptural references in the Bible and the Book of Mormon that support the Word of Wisdom, used in our teachings. Some are listed below. You can also look in the Topical Guide of the Standard Works {Scriptures} under "Word of Wisdom."

1 Corinthians 3:17
D&C 59:20
Deuteronomy 14:3

The Scriptures

The members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints believe in daily scripture study as a way to strengthen our spirits and pull ourselves closer to our Father in Heaven.

The Scriptures, otherwise known as the "Standard Works," contain two different books. They include the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon.

The Holy Bible is the regular bible - the same one all Christians use. {Yes, Mormons are Christian}. It contains the Old Testament, and the New Testament, and was not changed or altered in any way. It contains all of the same stories, meanings, and teachings as all Bibles.

The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ is a companion to the Bible. The two books go hand in hand with eachother.

The day of my baptism when I was eight-years-old, on November 2nd, 1991, my parents presented me with a copy of the Standard Works. My father wrote in the Bible, and my mother wrote in the Book of Mormon. My mother wrote the following explanation of the Book of Mormon:

"...May you use the Book of Mormon as a help-mate with the Bible.
These two books go hand-in-hand, the Bible talking about Jerusalem,
and the Book of Mormon talking about Jesus visiting this land we live
in: "The Americas," and the trials Nephi and his people went through..."

The Articles of Faith

The Articles of Faith are some basic beliefs of our church, written by the first prophet of our church, Joseph Smith.


1. We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

2. We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.

3. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

4. We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by emmersion for the remission of sins; fourth, laying on of hands for the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

5. We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

6. We believe in the same organizations that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

7. We believe in the gift of tounges, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tounges, and so forth.

8. We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

9. We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

10. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel an in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; and that Zion {the New Jerusalem} will be built upon the American Continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and recieve its paradisiacal glory.

11. We claim the privilege of worshiping the Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

12. We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magisrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

13. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul--We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured manythings, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
