Welcome to the Washington D.C. Temple

Take a look inside the Washington D.C. Temple with a tour hosted by Elder and Sister Stevenson and Elder and Sister Renlund.

For members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the temple is the most sacred place of worship on earth—it is the house of the Lord. It is a place set apart from the rest of the world where members seek to draw closer to God. Temples are designated by the Lord and dedicated to His purposes. Temples are the only places where some religious ceremonies, called ordinances, are authorized to be performed. These ordinances lift and inspire participants as they promise to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. Learn more about how each person is truly a son or daughter of God, how families can live together forever, and how we all can be united with Jesus Christ.
