“Jesus Christ Named His Church,” Friend, October 2021
Jesus Christ told Joseph Smith what to name the Church. He said it would be called “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
The words Jesus Christ are the most important part of the Church’s name. Since it is Jesus Christ’s Church, it is named after Him.
Latter-day Saints means the members of the Church today.
Prophets and apostles have taught that using the correct name of the Church is important. It helps others know we believe in Jesus Christ.
When others ask me what I believe, I can say, “I believe in Jesus Christ. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
