The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.

If you have a memory better than mine, then you may remember that I work in a nursing home. The nursing home has a way of bringing the Christians in the community through its doors.
We often have various churches performing services, singers singing, players playing (piano, guitar, flute, etc.) and we even have a couple Christian schools bring in students to do activities with the residents. (Our branch has even gone a few times for Christmas caroling). Sometimes the visitors are talented … sometimes not so talented. But no matter; the residents love the attention.
