We all have different ideas of worship. A simple prayer or a communion service with a scripture reading might be enough. Others may desire a sermon, or testimonies. Others find all of this tedious and would rather have intellectual stimulation that drives greater spiritual awareness.
When Joseph Smith Jr. walked into the grove to pray, after reading James 1:5, he had a miraculous experience. We are told that he was asked not to join any of the denominations he had explored. Why not?
In the Latter Day Saint movement men and women are called of God as "apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth" to help move individuals, congregations, churches, and the kingdom forward in Christ.
The Fellowship of Christ is a community of Christians worshipping God, loving all, and fostering a welcoming, safe space where all of God’s children can grow a personal relationship with their Creator.
All holy books have truth and wisdom in them; yet we do not accept all holy books as scripture the way we do the Bible and Book of Mormon.
"Is the Fellowship of Christ a church? a religious movement? an idea? or is it something else all together? Behold, O man, the will of your God: The Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship is all these and more, for it is the very Kingdom of God." -Doctrines of the Saints 125:2-3
"God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment." -1 Corinthians 1:9
God has a place for you!
There is no material gain we can achieve that will fill the void in our spirits. Only Jesus Christ can do this.
The Sisterhood of Christ is doing more than give women a voice in the Lord’s Fellowship; it is extending the keys of the priesthood of God to any woman who feels called of God to do His works.
We, as Latter Day Saints, claim to be living in the last days. When we look at the life of Joseph Smith Jr., his visions and revelations, it does appear to be the case. But looking at the sects that came from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that broke apart in 1844, when the men that God had called as leaders all refused to work as one. Where did these spiritual gifts go?
As we meet together as Saints, some have asked the proper way to organize services. The correct answer of course is, by the Spirit. That said, the Lord has given us instructions on this topic through Raphael, as he spoke to Adam and Eve. These instructions should be used in our home temples, in our Synagogues, Tabernacles, and Temples for personal and group worship.
