The Bible contains books of the Old and New Testaments. The Old Testament is a record of Creation, a record of God's establishment of the House of Israel as the Chosen People, a Hebrew record of bondage and deliverance by the Hand of God, a record of the Law of Moses, and a record of Prophecy of the Messiah and the End Times. The New Testament contains the Gospel, the Acts of the Apostles, the letters of the Apostle Paul to the Early Church, and more Prophecy. The New Testament bears witness that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Only Begotten Son of God, and our Lord and Savior.
The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is founded on scriptural principals. As Christians, we believe that the Bible provides insights for living our lives in today's world. In it we read about God's involvement with people in history and the promise of God's continuing action in the present.
It is our testimony that the Bible is a sacred book with valuable guidelines for living a fulfilled and happy life. We believe that the scriptures offer understanding into the meaning of community. Becoming a people of God is a major theme. The Old Testament affirms that all of life is a good and sacred gift from God. The New Testament gives assurance of God's desire to redeem all people and the Good News of what God has done for all through the life and ministry of His Son Jesus Christ. Reading the Bible offers new hope and strength for confronting the pain and problems we experience.
