What is the First Vision?

Christopher Payam-Fiti Sila
As a young boy Joseph Smith was deeply concerned for the well being of his soul and with so many different religions in his time of Era he didn't know which one to choose. So one day as he read in the Epistle of James, Ch. 1 verse 5, he was determined to ask God. In the year of 1820 he offered up a mighty prayer in a grove of tree's near his home. He had an experience that is known as the First Vision!! God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ appeared to him and told him to join none of the churches for they were all wrong and that through him the Fullness of the Gospel would be Restored. Because of this glorious event we are now blessed with the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and are able to experience blessings, happiness, joy, guidance, protection, etc. I invite those to pray and read about the Book of Mormon, who haven't done it already!! It will bring more joy and Happiness then you know and by abiding by its precepts it will bring you closer to our father In Heaven!! Show more Show less
