The Church represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a forum through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Our mission is to teach the Gospel to all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things commanded by Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20) and to draw Israel to Jesus Christ through an effort focused on the Native Americans of North and South
While we respect the freedom of choice as it applies to religious beliefs, we invite all who are seeking truth and sincerely interested in the simplicity of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, to explore our web site; who we are, and how, through Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice, all men and women might find eternal salvation.
May the Lord bless your heart and mind,
Today's article is another installment in Sister Alena X. Ricci's series on the women of the Bible.
The widow of Zarephath is probably a familiar figure to many of you. She is the woman who gave everything she had to make Elijah a meal.
She’s a common example of serious faith, a faith and a mind open to anything.
Her life reflects God’s goodness.
Her story is a “simple” one. Elijah comes to her and requests food, and she tells him that she is about to make her last meal for herself and her son before they die of starvation. But she gives Elijah food anyway, and then her little supply of flour and oil never runs dry.
Definition: Meeting the standards of Right in the eyes of Christ
- "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise." – Proverbs 11:30
- "And blessed are all they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled with the Holy Ghost." – 3 Nephi 12:6
One of the wonderful men who exemplify righteousness in scripture is King Benjamin. Here was a man who had the duty to govern a people who were rarely righteous. They constantly departed from the ways of God and could not hold to His standards. Yet in the Words of Mormon it says he was “a holy man, and he did reign over his people in righteousness” (v.17). He was able to serve the people with his own hands and exemplify Christ to his subjects. Through his righteous example, he was able to lead many of his people to Jesus Christ.
