The Bible and the Book of Mormon are united witnesses of Jesus Christ.
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, like many people around the world, find comfort and inspiration in the Bible. We believe it to be the sacred word of God.
In the Bible, the Apostle Paul taught, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established" (2 Corinthians 13:1). When God teaches an important principle, He sends another source to confirm it. The Book of Mormon is a second witness to the Bible's teachings. As many people today drift from God and religion, having more than one witness of God's words can help us stay on track.
The Book of Mormon and the Bible support one another's teachings, and we love both books. Each book describes God's interactions with people in a difference area of the world, but both books teach many of the same principles. The Book of Mormon confirms what the Bible says about Jesus Christ and clarifies many other Christian doctrines.
By studying both books, you can get a better understanding of who God is and what He wants for you. Together, the Book of Mormon and Bible contain thousands of years of inspiration, guidance, and instruction. Though the books were written a long time ago, you can still find lessons that apply to you today.
