Joseph Smith and the Gold Plates

Joseph Smith was a prophet. He helped Jesus bring His Church back to the world.

Joseph prayed to find out which church he should go to. Jesus said not to go to any of the churches. None of them were His Church.

The angel Moroni visited Joseph. Moroni told him about a special book written on gold plates. It was buried in a hill nearby.

With Heavenly Father’s help, Joseph translated the writing on the plates. These writings became the Book of Mormon!

Now we can read the Book of Mormon. And we can go to Jesus Christ’s Church!
