31 Days of Faith {We Believe 4...}

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

#1  Faith in Christ is fundamental in being a follower of Christ.  
#2  Partaking of the atonement and repenting of our sins and promising to try and not do them anymore
is preliminary to Baptism.  Then, we believe in continual repentance to remain clean in His eyes.  
#3. We pattern our Baptismal ordinance after the Savior's own baptism as recounted in the New Testament. #4. Worthy men in our church who hold the Priesthood have the authority to confer the Holy Ghost on members of the church. These men act as an instrument through which God sends this comforting and guiding Spirit.

**I am not a spokesperson for the 
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
