We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.—Articles of Faith 1:1
We believe that the same Church Jesus Christ established while on the earth has been restored once again by a prophet called of God in our time and that our leaders hold the same power and authority to act in God’s name that ancient Apostles held.—Bonnie L. Oscarson
