Many people ask who are you? What are you about? Are you a Mormon? Do you believe in the book of Mormon? Do you believe Joseph smith was a prophet? The answer to all those questions is an astounding YES! We are Mormons, we do believe in the book of Mormon and we believe that Joseph smith was a prophet of god. In fact we believe that he was the first prophet of the church we hold him as our founder and the propagator of the church of Christ.

Many of the Christian world think that Mormons are only those that belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this is not true. Mormons are those that follow the teachings of the book of Mormon. We therefore are Mormons, as we follow the teachings of the book of Mormon. We are also Christians. We have at the very head of our church the saviour Jesus Christ. It was he that bestowed upon our prophet Matthew Gill his calling. We are very much Christians. We observe all the Christian holidays and we celebrate them with much reverence.

The uniqueness of the Latter Day Church of Christ is that not only do we have the book of Mormon along with the bible and the Doctrine and covenants but we are in the wonderful position of having been given added scripture. These scriptures were given to us by the power of god and they testify of a people that lived in the British Isles in ancient days and there testimony of the almighty.

The Latter Day Church of Christ therefore are not only followers of the book of Mormon the bible the doctrine and covenants by we will also be followers of the principles laid down in this new book of scripture.

“Let it be understood from this day forth that we the Latter Day Church of Christ are followers of the Christ. We believe on him and we worship him. We love the lord and honour him with our worship” These are the words of our prophet. They are clear and to the point, there should be no doubt that we are first and foremost believes in the Christ.

Now that we have made clear our position on weather or not we are Mormons and weather or not we are Christians I would like to let all know that this Sunday coming will be a different event with two video on the restoration being shown. We are all looking forward to seeing them.

The Sacred records are almost finished with only a small amount left to do. We have now also located a publisher to do the copies that we need. The lord is truly blessing us and the work that we need to get done is being helped along by his all powerful will.

We are still appealing to all those who wish to make donations to the farm to do so your money will go to help all those who wish to move fully on to the farm and help make it a self sustaining success and bring hope to the wider community. We are also reaching out to all those who wish to come and join with us. Do not be put off from joining with us in worship. If you want to hear the gospel of Christ and hear a living modern day prophet who speaks to god them come along to our Sunday service. We start at 10:00 o’clock and finish at 12:00 o’clock you are all welcome to “Come listen to a prophet’s voice”

The Book of Mormon

Once again her are some quotes to ponder on for the week.

The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to itJoseph Smith Jr

The kingdom of God was set up on the earth from the days of Adam to the present time, whenever there has been a righteous man on earth unto whom God revealed His word and gave power and authority to administer in His name. And where there is a priest of God—a minister who has power and authority from God to administer in the ordinances of the gospel and officiate in the priesthood of God—there is the kingdom of God Joseph Smith Jr

I translated the record, by the gift and power of God. In this important and interesting book the history of ancient Britain is unfolded. . . . The Saviour planted the gospel here in all its fullness, and richness, and power, and blessing; that they had apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists; the same order, the same priesthood, the same ordinances, gifts, powers, and blessings, as is enjoyed today, that the people were destroyed in consequence of their transgressions, that the last of their prophets who existed among them was commanded to write an account of their prophesies and their history, He was commanded to hand them to the saviour himself, so that one day the saviour would be able to give the record to one of his servants to give to me, and that it should come forth and be united with the bible and the Book of Mormon for the accomplishment of the purposes of God in the last days Matthew Gill
