Mormon Observations on “The Book of Mormon” the Musical – Two by Two

All the posts in this series.

Go back to “Two by Two”.

The Mission of the Church
“We’ll convert everyone all across the planet Earth!
That is… the purpose of-
The Church of Jesus Christ!
…of Latter-Day Saints!”

The mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is certainly not to convert everyone all across the planet Earth. That’s not to say we would be disappointed if that happened – the blessings of the gospel are exactly what this world needs – but that’s not our mission.

The Church has traditionally had a three-fold mission. In fact, this has just recently been augmented that by one more element.

The original elements were:

  • Perfect the Saints
  • Proclaim the Gospel
  • Redeem the Dead

Where do these come from? Well, see Ephesians 4:12, for example, or Doctrine and Covenants 110:11-16 (I only provide you those references to see that the Church didn’t just pull these out of the air).

The element just added recently:

  • Care for the Poor and Needy

Everything that is done in our Church fits into one of those four categories.
