The Book of Mormon

Another Testament of Jesus Christ


The Book of Mormon is a record of God’s dealings with some of the ancient inhabitants of the Americas.  It was brought forth by the grace and power of God in our day as a second witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior and redeemer of all mankind.

In September 1823, Joseph Smith was visited by a heavenly messenger named Moroni, in the same way that angels often appeared to Church leaders in the New Testament.  Moroni told Joseph that God had a work for him to do and that a record of the people who lived on the American continent many centuries before was buried in a nearby hill.  He said that the record contained the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In September 1827, Joseph received the record, which was written on thin plates of gold.  Joseph translated the book into English by the inspiration of God and called the book the Book of Mormon.  It is named after Mormon, an ancient prophet who compiled the sacred record.  The book, as another testament of Christ, confirms the reality and divinity of Jesus Christ. It is, therefore, a second witness that substantiates the truth of the Bible.

Importantly, the Book of Mormon is also tangible, undeniable evidence that Joseph Smith is a prophet, called by God to restore His gospel and His Church on the earth in our day.
