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.
Elizabeth is a familiar figure in scripture. I think that, as women, we are told to look to her as an example. Here was a woman who was faithful, never-changing, and consistent in her service to God. She was walking in all the commandments before God. She did everything she could to be a righteous, faithful example.
But she was barren. (As I went through this story, I was reminded of how familiar this is both in Scripture and in our own lives today.)
She was well respected, and when her husband went to the temple and came back mute, sharing the news that she was to have a child, I like to imagine that she laughed.
But unlike Sarah, she didn’t laugh at the power of God, but instead at her husband for having an angel actually tell him what was going to happen and still voice disbelief. (How many times does God show us something directly and we still doubt?)
