The Doctrine of Christ – “whoso buildeth upon this buildeth upon my rock” An open community of independent latter-day believers who seek to learn, follow, teach and value the “Doctrine of Christ” above all else.
The doctrine of Christ is the word of Christ to us. It is the seed spoken of by Alma in Alma chapter 32:22. “And now, behold, I say unto you, and I would that ye should remember, that God is merciful unto all who believe on his name; therefore he desireth, in the first place, that ye should believe, yea, even on his word.”
The word or seed of the doctrine of Christ is not just planted in our minds but even in our hearts to believe. Our mind can help us make room in our hearts to believe by being open to receiving revelation to the understanding of the doctrine of Christ. Planting this seed and caring for it by both diligence and patience it becomes a tree.
The tree represents the new and everlasting covenant of a broken heart and contrite spirit. Our heart is the ground where the this tree is growing.
The roots represent the doctrine of Christ growing within our hearts even to baptism by water.
The fruit is the baptism of fire and the Holy Ghost which sanctifies and fills us with hope for eternal life. See Alma 32:22-43.
Explore the doctrine of Christ with articles, podcasts, videos, study guides, Zoom meetings, Facebook groups, live events and more. Here is the Doctrine of Christ, as shown in the Book of Mormon, in my own words: “I am trying to come unto our Savior, Jesus Christ, every day as a little child humbly submits with a broken heart so I can receive the Baptism of Fire and the Holy Ghost and then to continue loving Him and all people until someday He blesses me with his rest, exaltation and eternal life.” The leaders of the LDS church do not teach the true doctrine of Christ, as taught in the Book of Mormon.
