Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Today in 1830, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized.
And also those to whom these commandments were given, might have power to lay the foundation of this church, and to bring it forth out of obscurity and out of darkness, the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord, am well pleased, speaking unto the church collectively and not individually——Doctrine and Covenants 1:30
Since its organization on the sixth of April of 1830, the Church has begun to fill the whole earth, as the ancient prophet Daniel had prophesied. We now find ourselves on the threshold of unprecedented growth where millions are receiving this good news and are joining the Church.—John B. Dickson
