Welcome to The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ
This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as taught and preached by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (please view the Declaration at the bottom right of this page)
Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the plan of salvation and of repentance, is a primary focus of this web site. Everyone in this world, whether in or out of God's one true Church, needs this gospel. None can survive these last-days (or latter-days) without it. None can make it to the Kingdom of God, without adhering to this gospel and abiding in the commandments and ordinances held therein.
This is a call to all humanity, a call back to God through his plan and gospel.
A Call to All Humanity
A call to repentance and salvation. This call is to everyone, no matter the creed, color, belief or religion. It is a call to return to God. Have you heard this call? Some may have labeled this as the "latter day call from God". Do you know what it entails and what it really means to you in terms of the "after life", meaning the life after mortality?
Have you felt a draw to God? Have you begun to investigate religion for the first time and wanting to take a serious look at it?
Did you know that God has built his Church on this earth for these latter days?
There are so many people who actually have no knowledge of what God's Church entails. They look at religion in terms of and defined by the world, but rarely in terms defined by God. - Yes there is a big difference.
Some use the Catholic church as a template or as a reference point, which is a poor reference point. They praise God but deny his power, such as continued revelation which places man in complelte control instead of God. Yes it is true, when a church denies the power of God, they remove God from the head of the church and remove his authority to administrate the church. God's true Church is one that cannot exist without God's power. His power, for example, is one of revelation. This means he speaks to and communicates with the man "He" places as the president of his Church.
This is so true, God is the one that chooses the man who leads his Church. The man who administers God's true Church does not politic his way into position or seek "favour" of others or the world and he is also not paid. This says that God's chosen president, called a prophet, works voluntarily, without pay
Few have realized that there is a drastic difference between God's true Church, run and supervised by him directly, versus the churches of the world that are built by men, not by God. Is it hard to believe that God actually involves himself in a Church? - Yea he does and it is a full involvement. It was the same way as with the original Church organized by Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
God is a real person, just like you and me. The difference is that he is an exalted and perfected man. He does have a body and the God that created you and me is the "Father". His son who died on the cross for us is "Jesus Christ". Both exist with perfected and exalted bodies. God inspires, he blesses, he hears prayers, and he offers his words to you to explain himself, how he works and what he wants of you. Read about how important this Call to Humanity
means for you.
The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ
Why did this gospel need restoration? It is because precious parts of it were lost or removed
during the centuries of apostasy (fallen into spiritual darkness
We believe that the Bible is the word of God, so long as it is correctly translated or interpreted. In ancient times or what is called "New Testament times" precious doctrines were lost because of the persecution of the early Christian Church by disbelievers and the Roman goverment.
The New Testament of the Bible was not made from any of the original writings of the Apostles of the Early Christian Church, the Church that Jesus organized and gave authority to preach his Gospel. There exist NONE of the early writings of the Apostles. Long before the Bible was made, the early Christian Church fell into apostacy after it's Apostles were killed or died. The early Christian Church ended about 90-100 AD
The first Bible was formed by St. Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, at about 367 AD.This Bishop was the Bishop of the early Catholic church, . At that time, the early Catholic church collected many transcripts and writings made by unknown authors who had recorded the words of the Apostles. This is likely followers and believers of the Apostles This Bishop and his believers chose what they believed to be inspired of God and disposed of the rest.
