The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

A book about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

According to teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there was a Great Apostasy, which means that all churches fell away from the true gospel and teach today false doctrines. Thus the only true church on earth needed to be restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith. His successors, who are appointed according to the Church tradition of Brigham Young, now lead the church. This is the reason for the existence of the LDS Church.[1] [2]

Summary of the Teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

The teachings of the LDS Church are best summarized by a quote by Joseph Smith:

The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it.[3]
