Article of Faith Eight

Article of Faith Eight:

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. 

A set of black leather-bound scriptures lying next to a red marking pencil on a gray surface.
The prophet Joseph Smith declared, "I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding its precepts, than by any other book. (History of the Church, 4:461.)"
The Book of Mormon and the Bible go hand in hand. From the beginning, church leaders have testified of the importance of the Bible, and of the Book of Mormon as another testament of Jesus Christ. 

I invite you to read the Book of Mormon, and pray to know of the pure truth it contains. It is truly the word of God, and above all it testifies of our Savior Jesus Christ. Staying close to this book and living the principles it contains, has changed everything for me and blessed me with guidance from above and a spirit in my life that brings peace when none can be found, and love when the definition has been all but lost in a world of confusion. 

When I am alone with the Book of Mormon and have a sincere prayer in my heart, I find in its pages the purest healing spirit and guidance. This is a book for every single day. This is a book for your questions. This is a book to find answers. This is a book of complete truth. This is a book that will bring you closer to God and His perfect Son. This is a book for all of God's children.

  1. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know this because I have read it, and the Spirit has testified of it's truthfulness many, many times. I know because as I have made it a part of my daily life that it brings peace to my soul. Jesus lives, and God has a plan for us. Much of what I know to be true comes from this book. I encourage truth seekers everywhere to read it and find out for themselves what treasures the Lord has for them in this great book.

  2. Every time I turn to the scriptures with a prayer in my heart, I feel God's love. The Holy Ghost testifies of truth in different ways. It can come as a warm feeling in your heart, a clarity of mind, a peace in your soul. I have felt this influence over and over again as I read the scriptures - both the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Through studying His words, I have felt God's love and I would not trade that for anything. I am so thankful for the words of the Lord found in the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

  3. I have a great love an respect for the scriptures. I know the Book of Mormon is of God. I have read it and prayed and know by the power of the Holy Ghost if it is true. I received my answer. It is true. I am no scriptorian, but I do love to read, learn and feel the Spirit as I open the Book of Mormon and the Bible.
