Eighth Article of Faith

Find each word in the eighth article of faith by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Two words have already been done for you. (Note: Start with the longer words—though the same letter may occur in more than one word, no shorter word will be within a longer one. For example, be in this puzzle is not in believe but is a separate word.) Place the leftover letters and punctuation mark on the blanks in order, reading each line from left to right. Then unscramble each word to find a message that will help you to remember what the eighth article of faith is about.

Eighth Article of Faith: We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
