Article of Faith 7

We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

Some of the blessings we receive from Heavenly Father are spiritual gifts. These gifts are given to those who are obedient and worthy to receive them.

  1. Who might receive the gift of tongues and the interpretation of tongues? (Tongues means languages.)

    These people are called to preach the gospel. They work in pairs. More than 50,000 are serving around the world. Who are they?

  2. Who can receive the gift of prophecy?

    These men are called of God to lead and guide the Church. Many of them wrote books that are now scripture. They are people like Moses, Isaiah, Nephi, Alma, and Joseph Smith. Who are they?

  3. Who can receive the gift of revelation?

    This spiritual gift can be given to young and old. The prophet receives revelation for the Church. A bishop receives revelation for his ward. Mothers and fathers receive revelation for their families. You can receive revelation for yourself. Who can receive revelation?
