The Book of Mormon is a book with a promise. Although its history is compelling by itself, it is a book of scriptural significance that should be received and read under the influence of the Holy Ghost.
[MUSIC] We declare that the Book of Mormon is a book that testifies that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior of the world. Great prophets throughout the Book of Mormon have borne solemn witness that Jesus Christ is the Creator of the Earth, the Redeemer of mankind, the only begotten of the Father.
These Book of Mormon prophets knew Him as Abraham and Moses did, and received and taught His everlasting Gospel. As we read and study their words, we gain a deeper understanding of the Savior's matchless love, His perfect life and example, and the blessings of His great atoning sacrifice.
Although it's history is compelling by itself, it is a book of scriptural significance that should and must be received and read under the influence of the Holy Ghost. All who study and ponder its teachings are given a promise in the last chapter of Moroni, as well as in the introduction to the Book of Mormon, where we read "We invite all men and women everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony that's truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost."
I express my solemn witness that the Book of Mormon is true. It is a book that has brought about a mighty change in my life. I know that God lives, Jesus is the Christ, His Gospel has been restored on the Earth. The spirit I feel as I daily read, ponder, and pray about the Book of Mormon strengthens my understanding and testimony of these things and reaffirms to me that they are true.
I humbly share this testimony and my personal witness with you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
