Church of Jesus Christ
See also Church, Name of; Church, Signs of the True; Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, The; Kingdom of God or Kingdom of Heaven; Restoration of the Gospel; Saint
An organized body of believers who have taken upon themselves the name of Jesus Christ by baptism and confirmation. To be the true Church it must be the Lord’s Church; must have His authority, teachings, laws, ordinances, and name; and must be governed by Him through representatives whom He has appointed.
The Lord added to the Church daily,
We, being many, are one body in Christ,
By one Spirit we are all baptized into one body,
1 Cor. 12:13.
The Church is built upon the foundation of Apostles and prophets,
Apostles and prophets are essential to the Church,
Christ is the head of the Church,
Notwithstanding there were many churches, they were all one Church,
The Church was cleansed and set in order,
Christ’s Church must be called in his name,
3 Ne. 27:8.
The Church did meet together oft to fast and to pray and to speak,
This is the only true and living Church,
The Church of Christ rose in these last days,
The Lord calls his servants to build up his Church,
For thus shall my Church be called in the last days,
