By Elder Tad R. Callister

On January 12, 2014 Elder Tad R. Callister gave a CES Devotional at BYU-Idaho about the core doctrine of Christ’s Church. Many members are not as familiar in the New Testament as they are The Book of Mormon, so he taught our doctrine using (almost) solely New Testament scriptures.

Here are the doctrinal points he made:

–Organization

-Teachings

-Ordinances

-Fruits (Matt 7:20)

  • Health
  • Miracles and Gifts of the Spirit (Hebrew 2:4)
  • Angels & Visions
    • The angel announcing the birth of Christ to Mary
    • The angels coming to Peter, James, and John on the Mount of Transfiguration
    • The angel releasing Peter and John from prison
    • The angel speaking to Cornelius
    • The angel warning Paul of the impending shipwreck
    • The angel coming to John the Revelator
    • Stephen’s vision of the Father and the Son
    • John’s vision of the last days
  • Missionary Work (Matt 28:19)
  • Morality
  • Family-Centered Church

-Revelation (Amos 3:7; 2 Corinthians 12:1; Acts 1:2)

If one studies this church, he will be ruined for other churches. (John 6:67-68)

If this church is true, then Joseph Smith is a prophet, & Vice Versa. (Matt 7:18)
