Are you a believer? Do you want to become a believer but aren't sure how? We'll give you the steps to believe and to unlock the Spirit of God in your life.
Here's what the scriptures tell us about believing: "But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words" (Alma 32:27).
There was a prophet who made a promise about how we can know if the scriptures are from God: "And when ye shall receive these things (the scriptures), I would exhort (urge) you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost" (Moroni 10:5).

The preceding scriptures were taken from the Book of Mormon. Both the Book of Mormon are the writings of prophets of God. Both were written in different parts of the world...
The Bible tells us, "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." (John 7:17) This means that as we keep the commandments of God, we can know from Him that His word is true.
After you believe and learn about the word of God, the next step is to attend a religion. The religion that believes in both the Bible and Book of Mormon (shown above) is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Click to go to Mormon.org and take a look at their Meetinghouse Locator.
