Alot of people always ask if Mormons worship Joseph Smith, well the answer is no . I as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would like to inform you that Joseph Smith is a man call of God to be our Prophet.He was chosen to restore this Gospel on earth, at the age of 14 he has questions on which religion he should join ,he prayed about it and the Lord answer his prayer that he should not join any church.At the age of 14 he went to the Sacred grove and he prayed about which religion he should join and then Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him n told him to restore the gospel upon this earth.We worship God our Eternal Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith is a prophet and a man call of God , we respect him,we proclaim him, we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His church and for the blessings of his people.

Where did Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begin?

Leba
Heavenly Father reached out to His children in love.He called a young man named Joseph Smith as a prophet.Through him the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth. Joseph Smith lived in the United States, His family members were deeply religious and constantly sought for truth. Joseph Smith desire to know which church is true. The bible taught that there was "one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism.Joseph Smith attended different Churches, but he remained confused about which church he should join. As Joseph Smith sought truth among the different faiths, he turned to the bible for guidance. He read,"If any of you lack wisdom ,let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally , and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him"(James 1:5).Because of that passage ,Joseph Smith decided to ask God what he should do. In the spring 1820 Joseph Smith went into a grove of trees near his home and prayed to learn which church he should join.In answers to his prayer,God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to him, just as heavenly being s had appeared to prophets like Moses and Paul in biblical times.Joseph learned that the Church originally organized by Jesus Christ during His mortal ministry was no longer on the earth.Joseph Smith was chosen by God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ to the earth.Joseph was visited by other heavenly messengers,translated the Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God , and receive authority to organize the Church.
