“And the Establishment of the Church Became General Throughout the Land”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

... This was a Christian Church in the true sense of the word, inasmuch as it was founded upon a correct understanding of the redeeming mission of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, and was founded under direction from on High, and by the power of the Priesthood. The name "Christian," as applicable to the Nephite Church during the so-called pre-Christian era, is mentioned four times in the Book of Mormon.
