Catherine's Testimony

Did you ever wonder where do you come from, what you are doing here and where you will return? So did I!

I talked to several people of different faiths. Then I had another question on my mind: if Jesus put His Church on this Earth then which one is The true church. All the churches teach different things, and they are so different that they cannot all be right. One day, I entered The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, putting aside all the hearsay, and asked them what this church was about. The missionaries taught me what they believed in, I went to their meetings, and most importantly, I prayed. One of the Elders told me, "We are not here to tell you to join our church, we're only here to tell you that there is a way to find out for yourself if this church is The Church of Christ reestablished in these latter days. What you have to do is pray and the Lord will tell you." This last sentence really hit me and I answered by saying: "All right, that sounds safe enough for me, I will not have anything to do with it unless like you said I receive an answer from God." After reading The Book of Mormon and praying, asking with sincerity and faith for an answer, one night I knew, for I felt it with my heart, with all certainty, that I couldn't deny that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church here on the earth. It's been twenty years now and my testimony has been grown as I receive blessing after blessing, and so many answers to my prayers. Try it, like me twenty years ago you have nothing to lose but everything to win. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
 
 

Keith's Testimony

Everyone believes something, and what one believes is very important. But just as important is why one believes. We often believe because of tradition, culture, and what our fathers taught us. We often believe because our beliefs make sense to our intellects and don't conflict too much with the lifestyle we have chosen. The best reason I have found for believing is contained in the Book of Mormon: "Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, ... ponder it in your hearts. And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." (Moroni 10:3-5) God doesn't ask us to be intellectual giants and fully comprehend all the arguments of all the religions, because that would be impossible. He asks us to not trust in the arm of the flesh or in our own understanding, but to trust in the arm and strength of the Lord, to have a sincere heart and follow the admonition of the Savior, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you" (Matt 7:7). I believe in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I knew that I could never really know if any of my former ideas were true unless I asked God. He answered me by speaking directly to my soul and by bestowing the intense feelings of peace and joy to my mind, heart, and body that is the unmistakable revelation of the Holy Ghost, that Jesus is the Christ and that The Book of Mormon is His Word to us today, along side the Bible. What greater witness can you have than from God? I invite you to also respectfully examine your convictions and ask , knowing that God answers prayers. I know that if you search it out, he will answer the desires of your heart, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
 
 

The Book of Mormon is a Key to Truth

If you've ever heard anything about the Book of Mormon at all, you've probably heard that it contradicts the Bible, is full of errors, and that there is no evidence for its validity at all. We however proclaim to the world that the Book of Mormon was translated in modern times from an ancient book, by a prophet named Joseph Smith through the gift and power of God. It is a companion scripture to the Bible, and while it does contradict some people's Biblical interpretations, it is in full harmony with the Bible. It is the most correct book of any book on Earth, containing a full explanation of the mission and atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ. And it has sufficient evidence in the form of both personal witnesses to how God brought forth the Scripture and scientific archeological and textual evidence to show that no one in 1830 could have possibly produced this book without the revelations of God. It stands as a witness to the world that God is a God of Miracles in our days as well as in days of old. He has not forgotten us or left us on our own to just guess and argue about Him.
