Lessons With the Missionaries
Missionaries from our church teach lessons about the gospel of Jesus Christ. When a person has completed the lessons, and has been interviewed and found worthy, they may be baptized. The goal is to make sure that the investigator understands the principles of the gospel, and is willing to keep the commandments. It is also important for the investigator to have prayed to gain a testimony of the things they have been taught.
There are four lessons that the missionaries teach. It may take more than one session to complete a lesson, all depending on the understanding of the person who is being taught.
The four lessons are:
• The Message of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
... God Is Our Loving Heavenly Father
... The Gospel Blesses Families
... Heavenly Father Reveals His Gospel in Every Dispensation
... The Savior’s Earthly Ministry and Atonement
... The Great Apostasy
... The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Joseph Smith
... The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ
...Pray to Know the Truth through the Holy Ghost
• The Plan of Salvation
... Pre-Earth Life: God’s Purpose and Plan for Us
... The Creation
...Agency and the Fall of Adam and Eve
...Our Life on Earth
...The Spirit World
...The Resurrection, Judgment, and Immortality
...Kingdoms of Glory
• The Gospel of Jesus Christ
...Through Christ We Can Be Cleansed from Sin
...Faith in Jesus Christ
...Baptism, Our First Covenant
...The Gift of the Holy Ghost
...Endure to the End
• The Commandments
This includes the Ten commandments, as well as the law of Tithing, and the Word of Wisdom.
If you are interested in having the missionaries teach you, you may contact one of our churches near you, or go to www.mormon.org and click on ASK A QUESTION and ask them to send the missionaries to your house. Our missionaries are young, but they strive to have the Spirit with them as they teach. I know that you will feel the peace of the Spirit as they teach.
