God Is Your Loving Heavenly Father

“The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2005)


God is your Father in Heaven. He knows you personally and loves you more than you can comprehend. He wants you to be happy in this life and in eternity.

To accomplish this purpose, Heavenly Father provided a plan called the gospel* of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Son of God; His life and teachings are the guide to peace in this life and joy in eternity.

The Gospel Blesses Families and Individuals

The gospel of Jesus Christ blesses all who accept and live it. One of the best places to teach and apply the gospel is in families. God has established families to bring happiness to His children, to allow us to learn correct principles in a loving atmosphere, and to prepare us to return to Him after we die. Although family relationships can be challenging at times, Heavenly Father blesses us as we strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. These teachings help us strengthen our families.
