“His Name Shall Be Jesus Christ”

Church Educational System

It is significant that the name Jesus Christ appears often in the Book of Mormon. The worship of the source of salvation, clearly identified as Jesus Christ, is a common tie between members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the ancient worshippers of Christ in the early Americas. He is also the same individual who established His Church among the New Testament Saints, and it was Jesus Christ in whose name Adam was baptized (see Moses 6:52). Thus the Saints in all ages of the world look to Jesus Christ as the source of strength and salvation, who Nephi testified is “the Son of God” (2 Nephi 25:19).
