Lesson 4

Baptism and Confirmation

The Missionaries Will Teach...

The way to show your desire to follow God is through being baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  By being baptized, we are promising to take upon us the name of Jesus Christ, to always remember him, to obey the commandments, to always stand as a witness to God, and to assist those in need.  To the extent that we are true and faithful to these promises, God will give us the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, to forgive us of our sins, and to cause us to be reborn.
