Believe in Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Redeemer,

the Son of God, who came to earth and walked the

dusty roads of Palestine-the Son of God-to teach us

one great and glorious act offered an atonement for

each of us. He opened the way of salvation and

exaltation for each of us, under which we may go

forward in the Church and kingdom of God. Be not

faithless, but believe in the great and wonderful and

marvelous blessings of the Atonement.

the world's history. -
