THE ARTICLES OF FAITH


Of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latterday Saints

History of the Church, Vol. 4, pp. 535-541

  1. WE BELIEVE in God, the Eternal Father, and in His
    Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

  2. WE BELIEVE that men will be punished for their own
    sins, and not for Adam's transgression.

  3. WE BELIEVE that through the Atonement of Christ,
    all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws
    and ordinances of the Gospel.

  4. WE BELIEVE that the first principles and
    ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the
    Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third,
    Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins;
    fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy
    Ghost.

  5. WE BELIEVE that a man must be called of God,
    by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands, by those
    who are in authority to preach the Gospel and
    administer in the ordinances thereof.

  6. WE BELIEVE in the same organization that existed
    in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets,
    pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

  7. WE BELIEVE in the gift of tongues, prophecy,
    revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of
    tongues, and so forth.

  8. WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the word of God
    as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe
    the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

  9. WE BELIEVE all that God has revealed, all that
    He does now reveal, and we believe that He will
    yet reveal many great and important things
    pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

  10. WE BELIEVE in the literal gathering of Israel and
    in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion will be
    built upon this (the American) continent; that Christ
    will reign personally upon the earth, and, that the
    earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal
    glory.

  11. WE CLAIM the privilege of worshiping Almighty
    God according to dictates of our own conscience,
    and allow all men the same privilege, let them
    worship how, where, or what they may.

  12. WE BELIEVE in being subject to kings, presidents,
    rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and
    sustaining the law.

  13. WE BELIEVE in being honest, true, chaste,
    benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men;
    indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of
    Paul - We believe all things, we hope all things,
    we have endured many things, and hope to be able
    to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous,
    lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek
    after these things.
