Article of Faith 3

“We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.”

Jesus suffered for our sins. He was resurrected and lives again. Because of the Savior’s Atonement, we can be made clean and live with Heavenly Father again if we obey the commandments and repent when we sin.

An ordinance is an action that has special spiritual meaning. Baptism and the sacrament are two examples of ordinances.

Articles of Faith in Action

Jesus Christ was a perfect example. He showed us how to live. I know that He lived. Jesus died for us. Jesus loves us and so does Heavenly Father.

Memorization Tip

Jesus’s body lay in the tomb for three days, so Article of Faith 3 is about the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
