Joseph Smith's Search for Truth










Joseph Smith's Search for Truth

Joseph Smith was a young fourteen year old farm boy back in 1830 when he developed a great yearning or desire to know more about the truth of God, and to unite himself with God's true church.  After much searching and study of the Bible, and meeting with the different churches and sects available to him at the time, he decided to pray and ask God, himself, which of all the churches was true.  You can read his history here, or learn more about his life and story in the videos below.  




Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.  In the short space of twenty years, he has brought forth the Book of Mormon, which he translated by the gift and power of God, and has been the means of publishing it on two continents; has sent the fullness of the everlasting gospel, which it contained, to the four quarters of the earth; has brought forth the revelations and commandments which compose this book of Doctrine and Covenants, and many other wise documents and instructions for the benefit of the children of men; gathered many thousands of the Latter-day Saints, founded a great city, and left a fame and a name that cannot be slain.  He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people; and like most of the Lord's anointed in ancient times, has sealed his mission and his works with his own blood; and so has his brother Hyrum.  In life they were not divided, and in death they were not separated.

  1. Although I am not a Mormon I appreciate that we need human guidance in our churches whether saint or prophets to guide us here on earth.
