Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! The scriptures teach us that we need a church directed by the authority of Jesus Christ.
And they were called the church of God, or the church of Christ, from that time forward. And it came to pass that whosoever was baptized by the power and authority of God was added to his church.—Mosiah 18:17
The scriptures clearly teach the origin and need for a church directed by and with the authority of our Lord, Jesus Christ.—Dallin H. Oaks
