31 Days of Faith {We Believe 5...}

"We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof."

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a very busy church. We are a very active people. It is a "volunteer" church. No one is compensated for their time. Members hold various "callings" or jobs within the church to help it run its various programs smoothly. We believe that the leaders pray to the Lord about who would be fitting for each job. After agreeing upon the job, leaders lay their hands on our head using the Priesthood, asking for the Lord's help and guidance in fulfilling that calling. In addition to callings, the ordinances performed in the church are performed by worthy men who hold the Priesthood. This would include blessing and passing of the Sacrament, Baptism, Gift of the Holy Ghost and eternal marriages.
