I believe

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I believe in and worship the Savior, Jesus Christ. I believe in the institution of the family, that marriage is between a man and a woman legally and lawfully wed. I believe that Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees in Palmyra, New York, the spring of 1820, to pray and saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I believe that he was given the location of golden plates which he translated into the Book of Mormon. I know that what is written in that book is true, and that it testifies of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and tells the history of a people in the Americas who were also visited by Jesus. There has never been a truer book written than the Book of Mormon.

I know that my Savior lives. I know that he lived, taught the gospel, was a perfect example, and then allowed himself to experience pain beyond imagination to atone for the sins of all of us. He then allowed himself to be taken, scourged, hung on a cross, and killed. Three days later, He rose from the dead and was resurrected. I am so grateful for His willingness to suffer for me. I know that He loves me because of his sacrifice, and that through obedience and also through grace that I can be saved to live with Him again.

I testify that all who wish to have this same knowledge can, if they will simply open their hearts and read the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. If you will read with an open heart and contrite spirit, you will feel of His love and come to know Him. This will bring you greater joy and peace than you have ever experienced. I know this to be true because I have felt it. When I read the Book of Mormon, I feel His love and I feel the spirit testify to me that it is true. I thank the Lord for this revelation and for the presence of His spirit in my life. I know these things to be true, and I will always testify of them in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
