Saved through faith in Christ

God knowing all things,
being from everlasting to everlasting,
behold, he sent angels
to minister unto the children of men,
to make manifest concerning
the coming of Christ;
and in Christ there should
come every good thing.

And God also
declared unto prophets,
by his own mouth,
that Christ should come.

And behold,
there were divers ways that
he did manifest things
unto the children of men,
which were good;
and all things which are good
cometh of Christ;
otherwise men were fallen,
and there could no good thing
come unto them.

by the ministering of angels,
and by every word which
proceeded forth
out of the mouth of God,
men began to exercise faith in Christ;
and thus by faith, they did
lay hold upon every good thing;
and thus it was until the coming of Christ.

And after that he came
men also were saved
by faith in his name

Believe in Jesus Christ

A man being a servant of the devil
cannot follow Christ;
and if he follow Christ
he cannot be a servant of the devil.

Wherefore the Spirit of Christ
is given to every man, that
he may know good from evil;
I show unto you the way to judge;
for every thing which inviteth to do good,
and to persuade to believe in Christ,
is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ;
wherefore ye may know
with a perfect knowledge
it is of God.

But whatsoever thing
persuadeth men to do evil,
and believe not in Christ,
and deny him, and serve not God,
then ye may know
with a perfect knowledge
it is of the devil.

And now, seeing that
ye know the light
by which ye may judge,
which light is the light of Christ,
see that ye do not judge wrongfully;
for with that same judgment
which ye judge ye shall also be judged.

Wherefore, I beseech of you
that ye should search diligently
in the light of Christ
that ye may know good from evil;
and if ye will lay hold upon every good thing,
and condemn it not,
ye certainly will be a child of Christ.

Peaceable followers of Christ

I would speak unto you
that are of the church,
that are the peaceable followers of Christ,
and that have obtained
a sufficient hope by which ye can
enter into the rest of the Lord,
from this time henceforth
until ye shall rest with him in heaven.

And now my brethren,
I judge these things of you
because of your peaceable walk
with the children of men.

Through grace in Christ

It is by the grace
of God the Father,
and our Lord Jesus Christ,
and his holy will, because of
the gift of his calling unto me,
that I am permitted
to speak unto you at this time.

The people of Christ

If they repented not,
and confessed not,
they were not numbered
among the people of Christ.

But as oft as they repented
and sought forgiveness,
with real intent,
they were forgiven.

Always remember our Lord Jesus

They did meet together oft
to partake of bread and wine,
in remembrance of the Lord Jesus.

Jesus Christ is our Master

And after they had been received unto baptism,
and were wrought upon and cleansed
by the power of the Holy Ghost,
they were numbered among
the people of the church of Christ;
and their names were taken,
that they might be remembered
and nourished by the good word of God,
to keep them in the right way,
to keep them continually watchful unto prayer,
relying alone upon the merits of Christ,
who was the author and the finisher of their faith.

Baptized in the name of Jesus Christ

None were received unto baptism
save they took upon them
the name of Christ,
having a determination to
serve him to the end.

We do always remember Jesus

Behold, they took the cup, and said:

O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee,
in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ,
to bless and sanctify this wine
to the souls of all those who drink of it,
that they may do it
in remembrance of the blood of thy Son,
which was shed for them;
that they may witness unto thee,
O God, the Eternal Father,
that they do always remember him,
that they may have his Spirit to be with them.


Always remember our Savior Jesus Christ

The manner of their elders and priests
administering the flesh and
blood of Christ unto the church;
and they administered it according to
the commandments of Christ;
wherefore we know the manner to be true;
and the elder or priest did minister it—

And they did kneel down
with the church, and pray
to the Father in the name of Christ,

O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee
in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ,
to bless and sanctify this bread
to the souls of all those who partake of it;
that they may eat
in remembrance of the body of thy Son,
and witness unto thee,
O God, the Eternal Father,
that they are willing to take upon them
the name of thy Son,
and always remember him,
and keep his commandments
which he hath given them,
that they may always
have his Spirit to be with them.


Ordained of Jesus Christ

The manner which the disciples,
who were called the elders of the church,
ordained priests and teachers—

After they had prayed unto the Father
in the name of Christ,
they laid their hands upon them, and said:

In the name of Jesus Christ I ordain you
to be a priest, or a teacher,
to preach repentance and
remission of sins through Jesus Christ,
by the endurance of faith on his name to the end.


Authority through Jesus Christ

The words of Christ,
which he spake unto his disciples,
the twelve whom he had chosen,
as he laid his hands upon them—

And he called them by name, saying:
Ye shall call on the Father
in my name, in mighty prayer;
and after ye have done this
ye shall have power that
to him upon whom ye shall lay your hands,
ye shall give the Holy Ghost;
and in my name shall ye give it,
for thus do mine apostles.

Now Christ spake these words unto them
at the time of his first appearing;
and the multitude heard it not,
but the disciples heard it;
and on as many as
they laid their hands,
fell the Holy Ghost.

Deny not Christ

Because of their hatred
they put to death every Nephite
that will not deny the Christ.

And I will not deny the Christ.

They saw Jesus Christ

Ether saw
the days of Christ

Seek Jesus

And now, I would commend you to
seek this Jesus of whom
the prophets and apostles have written,
that the grace of God the Father,
and also the Lord Jesus Christ,
and the Holy Ghost, which
beareth record of them,
may be and abide in you forever.

Jesus Christ is our judge

We shall meet before
the judgment-seat of Christ,
where all men shall know
that my garments are
not spotted with your blood.

These things evidence Christ

It is by faith that
my fathers have obtained the promise
that these things should come unto
their brethren through the Gentiles;
therefore the Lord hath commanded me,
yea, even Jesus Christ.

Miracles through Christ

All they who wrought miracles
wrought them by faith,
even those who were before Christ
and also those who were after.

And neither at any time
hath any wrought miracles
until after their faith;
wherefore they first believed
in the Son of God.

Christ is manifest through faith

It was by faith that
Christ showed himself unto our fathers,
after he had risen from the dead;
and he showed not himself unto them
until after they had faith in him;
wherefore, it must needs be that
some had faith in him,
for he showed himself not unto the world.

But because of the faith of men
he has shown himself unto the world,
and glorified the name of the Father,
and prepared a way that thereby
others might be partakers of the heavenly gift,
that they might hope for those things
which they have not seen.

They knew Jesus Christ

And Emer did execute judgment
in righteousness all his days,
and he saw peace in the land; yea,
and he even saw the Son of Righteousness,
and did rejoice and glory in his day;
and he died in peace.

Have faith in Jesus Christ

And in that day that
they shall exercise faith in me,
saith the Lord,
that they may become sanctified in me,
then will I manifest unto them
even to the unfolding unto them
all my revelations,
saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
the Father of the heavens and of the earth,
and all things that in them are.

And he that will contend
against the word of the Lord,
let him be accursed; and
he that shall deny these things,
let him be accursed;
for unto them will I show
no greater things,
saith Jesus Christ;
for I am he who speaketh.

He saw Jesus Christ

It sufficeth me to say that
Jesus showed himself
unto this man in the spirit,
even after the manner and
in the likeness of the same body
even as he showed himself
unto the Nephites.

And he ministered unto him even as
he ministered unto the Nephites;
and all this, that
this man might know that he was God,
because of the many great works
which the Lord had showed unto him.

And because of the knowledge of this man
he could not be kept
from beholding within the veil;
and he had faith no longer,
for he knew, nothing doubting.

Wherefore, having
this perfect knowledge of God,
he could not be kept from within the veil;
therefore he saw Jesus;
and he did minister unto him.

Sons and daughters of Christ

Behold, I am Jesus Christ.

I am the Father and the Son.

In me shall all mankind have life,
and that eternally, even
they who shall believe on my name;
and they shall become
my sons and my daughters.

Seest thou that ye are
created after mine own image?

Yea, even all men
were created in the beginning
after mine own image.

Freedom through Jesus Christ

Behold, this is a choice land,
and whatsoever nation shall possess it
shall be free from bondage,
and from captivity,
and from all other nations under heaven,
if they will but serve the God of the land,
who is Jesus Christ,
who hath been manifested
by the things which we have written.

Through faith in Jesus Christ

And behold, these things
which we have desired
concerning our brethren,
yea, even their restoration
to the knowledge of Christ,
are according to the prayers
of all the saints.

And may the Lord Jesus Christ
grant that their prayers
may be answered
according to their faith;
and may God the Father
remember the covenant
which he hath made
with the house of Israel;
and may he bless them forever,
through faith on the name of Jesus Christ.

Worthy in Christ

See that ye partake not
of the sacrament of Christ
but see that ye do all things
in worthiness, and
do it in the name of Jesus Christ,
the Son of the living God;
and if ye do this,
and endure to the end,
ye will in nowise be cast out.
