31 Days of Faith {We Believe 6...}

"We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

The sixth Article of Faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is all about the organization of the Church. The LDS Church is patterned after the church in Christ's time. Jesus Christ is the head of our church, and we have twelve apostles along with our modern day prophet. The church is organized with leadership and supporting leadership all the way down to the Ward levels which can be compared to perhaps a Parish in the Catholic Church.  There are no paid clergy in the LDS church. Everything is done through volunteering of our time, and no one calling is above importance than another. A ward Bishop is held as an equal with perhaps the person who teaches the three year olds. Everyone is of utmost importance to the organization and workings of the LDS church.
