I’m starting a weekly post called “We Believe Wednesday.” Feel free to link up with our weekly posts. Each week I will post information on what I believe or stories that are relevant to my life as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
So, I’m a Mormon.
What is a Mormon?
A Mormon is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Often times people refer to us as the Mormon Church or Mormons.
Why are you called Mormons?
We believe in the Book or Mormon. This book is scripture, like the Bible. We believe the Book of Mormon aids in testifying of the life of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is given out freely, all over the world by members of our church, as well as by missionaries. If you would like one, feel free to ask me, a member, or click here.
What is the Book of Mormon?
The Book of Mormon is a compilation of writings from ancient prophets starting in Jerusalem with Lehi. Around 600 B.C., Lehi, his family and a few others traveled from Jerusalem to America. The Book of Mormon follows their journey and and continues to follow the people as they become a large civilization. Heavenly Father, God, continued to call prophets to help teach and guide the people. In the end of the Book of Mormon, the prophet Moroni, promises that if you sincerely read and pray with an open heart, you will know of its truth through the Holy Ghost (Moroni 10:4).
