Gospel of Jesus Christ

  • Through Christ We Can Be Cleansed from Sin
    • God sent His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, into the world (John 3:16–17).
    • Only through Christ’s grace and mercy can we become clean from sin (2 Nephi 2:6-8).
    • We are responsible to accept Christ, repent, and obey.
  • Faith in Jesus Christ
    • We are to believe in Christ as the Savior of the world.
    • He wants us to accept and follow His teachings.
    • We receive blessings when we obey (D&C 130:20-21).
  •  Repentance
    •  Faith in Christ leads to repentance (Alma 34).We feel godly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:9-10). 
    • We stop doing things that are wrong and continue doing things that are right.
    • We confess our sins, and we confess serious sins to Church leaders, who can help us repent (D&C 58:43).
    • We receive forgiveness; guilt and sorrow are replaced by peace (Alma 36:17-21).
  •  Baptism, Our First Covenant
    • An ordinance is a sacred rite by which we make covenants with God.  A covenant is a solemn agreement between God and His children.Keeping covenants brings blessings.
    • We are baptized by immersion for the remission of sins (Articles of Faith 1:4).
    • Then we are baptized we begin a new life of commitment to Christ (Romans 6:3-8).
    • Baptism must be performed by one holding priesthood authority
    • We renew our covenants by partaking of the sacrament weekly (D&C 20:77, 79).
  •  Endure to the End
    • We must continue on the path once we have been baptized and confirmed.
    • We do our best to remain free of sin so that we can enjoy the gift of the Holy Ghost.  
    • By faithfully following the gospel path of faith, repentance, making and keeping covenants, and receiving the Holy Ghost, we can qualify for eternal life (2 Nephi 31:14-20). 
    • We must continually repent throughout our lives (D&C 19:15-20).
