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.
We often throw a phrase around in our Church that a large part of our population can identify with: “born and raised.” You’ve heard it dozens of times and probably have even said it a few times during your testimony. So many of us have had the opportunity to be under the sound of the Gospel since birth or a very young age. Our parents, our grandparents, our aunts and uncles — someone brought us to church each week, and it’s all we’ve ever known.
But what about those Saints who had the opposite experience? What about those who met our precious pearl years later? Perhaps they were introduced by their girlfriend, their classmate, a flier hanging in the local library. Are their conversion stories any less great because they met The Church of Jesus Christ later in life?
Today should be our last school-themed Miracle Monday, but we didn't have enough submissions to fill the month. So, instead of a story, we're bringing you a request.
Wanted: Your Testimony
As today's post exemplifies, we can't share stories that we don't receive. That's where you come in. Tell us about the things that God has done for you. Recent. Long past. Big. Small. We love testimonies of all kinds. We try to spark your memory by providing a monthly theme, but we're happy to accept whatever you have to share whenever you feel to share it.
