Standing As Christians

And thus he was preparing
to support their liberty, their lands,
their wives, and their children,
and their peace, and that they might
live unto the Lord their God,
and that they might maintain
that which was called
the cause of Christians.
(Alma 48:10)

Rejoice In Jesus Christ

And it came to pass that
there were many who died,
firmly believing that
their souls were redeemed
by the Lord Jesus Christ;
thus they went out of
the world rejoicing.

And there were many
who died with old age;
and those who died
in the faith of Christ
are happy in him,
as we must needs suppose.
(Alma 46:39 & 41)

Firm In Christ

Stand fast in
the faith of Christ.
(Alma 46:27)

Loyal To Jesus Christ

If they should transgress
the commandments of God,
or fall into transgression,
and be ashamed to
take upon them the name of Christ,
the Lord should rend them
even as they had rent their garments.
(Alma 46:21)

We Follow Jesus Christ

We take upon us
the name of Christ.
(Alma 46:18)

True Christians

He bowed himself to the earth,
and he prayed mightily unto his God
for the blessings of liberty
to rest upon his brethren,
so long as there should
a band of Christians remain
to possess the land—

For thus were all the true believers of Christ,
who belonged to the church of God, called
by those who did not belong to the church.

And those who did belong to the church
were faithful; yea, all those who were
true believers in Christ
took upon them, gladly, the name of Christ,
or Christians as they were called,
because of their belief in Christ who should come.

And therefore, at this time, Moroni prayed
that the cause of the Christians,
and the freedom of the land might be favored.
(Alma 46:13-16)

They Knew Jesus

Jesus Christ shall
manifest himself
unto them.
(Alma 45:10)

Believe in Jesus

Believest thou
in Jesus Christ,
who shall come?

Yea, I believe
all the words
which thou hast spoken.

Blessed art thou;
and the Lord shall
prosper thee in this land.
(Alma 45:4-5 & 8)

Unshakable Faith In Christ

But now, ye behold that
the Lord is with us;
and now I would that
ye should understand
that this is done unto us
because of our religion
and our faith in Christ.

And now ye see that
ye cannot destroy
this our faith
(Alma 44:3)

Restored Through Christ

Behold, it is requisite and just,
according to the power
and resurrection of Christ,
that the soul of man
should be restored to its body,
and that every part of the body
should be restored to itself.
(Alma 41:2)

At The Resurrection Of Christ

The souls and the bodies
are reunited, of the righteous,
at the resurrection of Christ,
and his ascension into heaven.
(Alma 40:20)

Immortality Through Jesus Christ

This mortal does not put on immortality,
this corruption does not put on incorruption
until after the coming of Christ.
(Alma 40:2)

Glad Tidings Of Christ

And now, I would say somewhat unto you
concerning the coming of Christ.

Behold, I say unto you, that
it is he that surely shall come
to take away the sins of the world;
yea, he cometh to declare
glad tidings of salvation unto his people.
(Alma 39:15)

Only Through Jesus Christ

And now, I have told you this
that ye may learn wisdom,
that ye may learn of me that
there is no other way or means
whereby man can be saved,
only in and through Christ.

Behold, he is the life and
the light of the world.

Behold, he is the word
of truth and righteousness.
(Alma 38:9)

Peace In Christ

And it came to pass that
I was three days and three nights
in the most bitter pain
and anguish of soul;
and never, until I did cry out
unto the Lord Jesus Christ for mercy,
did I receive a remission of my sins.

But behold, I did cry unto him
and I did find peace to my soul.
(Alma 38:8)

The Words Of Christ

Behold, it is as easy to
give heed to the word of Christ,
which will point to you
a straight course to eternal bliss,
as it was for our fathers to
give heed to this compass,
which would point unto them
a straight course to the promised land.

And now I say,
is there not a type in this thing?

For just as surely as
this director did bring our fathers,
by following its course,
to the promised land,
shall the words of Christ,
if we follow their course,
carry us beyond this vale of sorrow
into a far better land of promise.
(Alma 37:44-45)

Believe In Jesus Christ

Preach unto them repentance,
and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ;
teach them to humble themselves
and to be meek and lowly in heart;
teach them to withstand
every temptation of the devil,
with their faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Alma 37:33)

Come, Know Jesus Christ

These records and their words
brought them to the knowledge
of the Lord their God, and
to rejoice in Jesus Christ their Redeemer.

And who knoweth but what they will
be the means of bringing many thousands
who are now hardening their hearts
in sin and iniquities,
to the knowledge of their Redeemer?
(Alma 37:9-10)

Jesus Christ Is Our Deliverer

And it came to pass that
as I was thus racked with torment,
while I was harrowed up
by the memory of my many sins,
behold, I remembered also
to have heard my father
prophesy unto the people
concerning the coming of
one Jesus Christ, a Son of God,
to atone for the sins of the world.

Now, as my mind
caught hold upon this thought,
I cried within my heart:
O Jesus, thou Son of God,
have mercy on me, who am
in the gall of bitterness,
and am encircled about
by the everlasting chains of death.

And now, behold, when I thought this,
I could remember my pains no more;
yea, I was harrowed up by
the memory of my sins no more.

And oh, what joy, and
what marvelous light I did behold;
yea, my soul was filled with joy
as exceeding as was my pain!
(Alma 36:17-20)

Receive Jesus Christ

And now I desire that
ye should no more deny
the coming of Christ;
That ye contend no more
against the Holy Ghost,
but that ye receive it,
and take upon you
the name of Christ.
(Alma 34:37-38)
