“Jesus Christ Commands the Saints to Gather to Zion,” Friend, July 2013, 16
Jesus Christ revealed to Joseph Smith that the members of the Church should go to Independence, Missouri, which was a “place for the city of Zion” (D&C 57:2).
“Zion” is a name for a place where members of the Church can gather together and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Some of these places are our homes, our wards, and our stakes.
Today members of the Church gather together all over the world to build up Zion. Zion can be any place where people live the gospel and help each other.
