As the first Elder and Prophet of The Restored Branch of Jesus Christ I want to express to the world our love and appreciation for The Book of Mormon.
As a branch we cherish The Book of Mormon we consider it a sacred text given to us by way of revelation through the prophet Joseph Smith. The Book of Mormon is a central part of our worship and our belief. It is true that The Restored Branch of Jesus Christ have other sacred scriptures that we use but they do not take away the importance and need for The Book of Mormon.
We consider ourselves part of the wider restoration movement, we consider ourselves followers of The Book of Mormon message and we endeavour to share that message with all the people of our country and the wider world. We love The Book of Mormon and we consider it important and special in bringing people closer to Christ and to a knowledge of our covenants that we have made with Christ and He with us. Its place within our Branch will never change and neither will our love for it falter.
We want to world to know that The Restored Branch of Jesus Christ are followers of The Book of Mormon and the Angel message it provides. We thank God for it in our loves and we hope that our love for this great piece of scripture will bring us closer to our brothers and sisters in the restoration.
