In temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, instructions and ordinances detailing our Father in Heaven’s plan of salvation are provided. Also detailed is the commitment required by followers of the Lord to obtain the blessings promised to the faithful.
In the Salt Lake Temple, these instructions and ordinances are given in different areas of the building. Baptisms are performed in the baptistry. The endowment is given in rooms painted to represent the Creation, the Garden of Eden, this world, and terrestrial conditions. The celestial room, with its beautiful furnishings, suggests the noble and exalted conditions awaiting the faithful. There are more than a dozen sealing rooms for ordinances of marriage and of sealing children to parents. The Salt Lake Temple also has council rooms for the presiding priesthood quorums of the Lord’s church, and a large assembly room for meetings.
