"First Article of Faith"



Song:
"I Know My Father Lives" (Children' s Songbook, p. 5.)

Scripture:
Article of Faith 1:1

Quote:
The first article of faith is familiar to all members of the Church. It is the pivotal position of our religion. It is significant that in setting forth the primary elements of our doctrine, the Prophet Joseph put this number one. The . . . Prophet [Joseph] said “It is the first principle of the gospel to know for a certainty the character of God.”

-- Gordon B. Hinckley

(Gordon B. Hinckley, The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Ensign May 1998, 2.)

Object Lesson:
Ask your family if they are aware of how other Christian churches describe the Godhead. (For example, some teach that God is a spirit without a body or that God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are all one being.) Show your family a picture of the First Vision (such as picture 403 in the Gospel Art Picture Kit). Then read together D&C 130:22–23. Ask:

What do these verses teach us about the Godhead?
How does Joseph Smith know what God is like?
How does knowing that God really is your Father in Heaven make it easier to pray to Him?
Why is the body of the Holy Ghost different from those of the Father and the Son?
• Why is it important to know what God is really like?

Share your testimony with your family of how knowing what God is really like has helped you have faith in Him and in His Son. Encourage your family to be worthy so that the Holy Ghost might dwell with them.

(Dennis H. Leavitt and Richard O. Christensen, Scripture Study for Latter-day Saint Families: The Doctrine and Covenants, [ Salt Lake City : Deseret Book, 2004], p. 293.)

Activity:
Unscramble these different names for the Holy Ghost:

LYOH OHTGS

PRITIS FO ETH DROL

METRCROFO

HET RITPIS FO RUTHT

(Ann Laemmlen and Jackie Owne, Articles of Faith Learning Book, [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1990], p. 17.)
