    The Fourth Article of Faith

    With vigor and spirit

    We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel

    are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;

    second, Repentance;

    third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins;

    fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    Words: Joseph Smith, 1805–1844
