Jesus Names His Church

And Jesus again showed himself unto them,
for they were praying unto the Father in his name;
and Jesus came and stood in the midst of them,
and said unto them: What will ye that I shall give unto you?

And they said unto him: Lord, we will that
thou wouldst tell us the name whereby we shall call this church;
for there are disputations among the people concerning this matter.

And the Lord said unto them: Verily, verily, I say unto you,
why is it that the people should murmur
and dispute because of this thing?

Have they not read the scriptures, which say
ye must take upon you the name of Christ, which is my name?

For by this name shall ye be called at the last day;

And whoso taketh upon him my name, and endureth to the end,
the same shall be saved at the last day.

Therefore, whatsoever ye shall do, ye shall do it in my name;
therefore ye shall call the church in my name;
and ye shall call upon the Father in my name
that he will bless the church for my sake.

And how be it my church save it be called in my name?

For if a church be called in Moses’ name then it be Moses’ church;
or if it be called in the name of a man then it be the church of a man;
but if it be called in my name then it is my church,
if it so be that they are built upon my gospel.

Verily I say unto you, that ye are built upon my gospel;
therefore ye shall call whatsoever things ye do call, in my name;
therefore if ye call upon the Father, for the church,
if it be in my name the Father will hear you;

And if it so be that the church is built upon my gospel
then will the Father show forth his own works in it.

But if it be not built upon my gospel,
and is built upon the works of men, or upon the works of the devil,
verily I say unto you they have joy in their works for a season,
and by and by the end cometh, and they are hewn down
and cast into the fire, from whence there is no return.
