Frequently Asked Questions

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Official Answer

Along with evidence of His marvelous creations all around you, Heavenly Father has given you many ways to know for yourself that He lives. You can:

  • Talk to Him through prayer and ask Him for reassurance and love.
  • Read the testimonies of special witnesses called apostles and prophets. They have had sacred experiences with God and have recorded these experiences in sacred books called scriptures.
  • Keep His commandments, which bring you closer to God and help you know that He lives.

Your belief in God will grow as you:

Pray to Heavenly Father (James 1:5).
Study the scriptures (2 Timothy 3:14-17).
Obey God’s commandments (John 14:21-23).

As you act on your desire to believe, God will strengthen your belief in Him until it becomes sure knowledge (Book of Mormon, Alma 32:27-35).
