Membership in Christ's Church

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is organized to perfect and bless the lives of God’s children.

Jesus Christ is the head of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The central purpose of the Church is to help all people come unto Christ (see Moroni 10:32). To fulfill this mission, the Church is organized according to the pattern revealed by the Lord “for the perfecting of the saints, . . . till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God” ( Ephesians 4:12–13); see also verse 11.

The family is the fundamental unit in the Church. No other organization can take the place of the family. As The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continues to grow, its purpose will always be to support and strengthen families and individuals in their efforts to live the gospel.

Membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides many opportunities to help others come unto Jesus Christ. Church members:

Donate their time and resources to help the needy and the afflicted.
Serve as missionaries across the world to teach God’s children the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
Perform saving ordinances (such as baptism) for themselves and for those who died without knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored by God through the Prophet Joseph Smith. You can know for yourself that these things are true by asking Heavenly Father in prayer.
