New Testament Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – Thou Art the Christ

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

During Christ’s life, he was called many things. The same is true today. This New Testament FHE lesson helps us understand how to build a testimony of Christ and why it’s important. Each of our FHE lessons includes three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.



Matthew 16:15-16

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.



I Believe in Christ | Hymn #134

1. I believe in Christ; he is my King!
With all my heart to him I’ll sing;
I’ll raise my voice in praise and joy,
In grand amens my tongue employ.
I believe in Christ; he is God’s Son.
On earth to dwell his soul did come.
He healed the sick; the dead he raised.
Good works were his; his name be praised.

2. I believe in Christ; oh blessed name!
As Mary’s Son he came to reign
’Mid mortal men, his earthly kin,
To save them from the woes of sin.
I believe in Christ, who marked the path,
Who did gain all his Father hath,
Who said to men: “Come, follow me,
That ye, my friends, with God may be.”

3. I believe in Christ—my Lord, my God!
My feet he plants on gospel sod.
I’ll worship him with all my might;
He is the source of truth and light.
I believe in Christ; he ransoms me.
From Satan’s grasp he sets me free,
And I shall live with joy and love
In his eternal courts above.

4. I believe in Christ; he stands supreme!
From him I’ll gain my fondest dream;
And while I strive through grief and pain,
His voice is heard: “Ye shall obtain.”
I believe in Christ; so come what may,
With him I’ll stand in that great day
When on this earth he comes again
To rule among the sons of men.




Activity: Begin the lesson by printing off a picture of Jesus on a large piece of paper. Carefully cut it up to make a puzzle. On the back of each piece, write down a truth about Christ. Some examples could be:

  • Died for my sins.
  • Gives prophets and apostles priesthood keys.
  • The Son of God.
  • Testifies of Heavenly Father.
  • Was resurrected.

Read through these truths together. Ask the children what else they know about Jesus. Then, have the children put together the puzzle.

Read: You can gain a testimony that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples had this testimony. Many people said mean things about Jesus. Some didn’t believe what He taught. Others were confused. He asked His disciples what they believed. Peter bore his testimony. He said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16).

Just like our puzzle, when we learn about Jesus, we can see Him more clearly.

Ask: What makes a testimony strong?

Share: Tell about a time in your life when your testimony was weak and what you did to make it stronger.

Testimony: Close the lesson with your testimony of Christ.


Video: Begin the lesson by watching the following video. Before pressing play, ask everyone to ponder on Peter’s response and how they would answer the Savior’s question.


Ask: What are some of the things people are saying about Jesus today? If someone were to ask you who Christ is, what would you say?

Quote: Have someone read this quote from President Henry B. Eyring: “Testimony requires the nurturing by the prayer of faith, the hungering for the word of God in the scriptures, and the obedience to the truth” (A Living Testimony, April 2011)

Ask: What are some words that President Eyring uses when describing how to grow a testimony? How can we make our testimonies stronger?

Read: A testimony of Christ comes by revelation. Christ told Peter that the Spirit revealed the truth to him. We can receive revelation as we strive to keep the commandments and cherish our covenants.

Share: Tell about a time in your life when you felt your testimony was weak or you had questions about Christ. Invite others to share their feelings as well.

Testimony: Close the lesson with your testimony.


Read “Converted unto the Lord” by Elder David A. Bednar. In a journal, write down major experiences of your conversion to Jesus Christ. Ponder something you want to do in the upcoming week to strengthen your testimony.
