What Are the 6 Proclamations that Have Been Issued in Church History?

by | Apr. 05, 2020

On April 5, 2020, President Russell M. Nelson introduced a new proclamation, “The Restoration of the Fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ: A Bicentennial Proclamation to the World.”

This isn’t the first proclamation leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have made. In fact, it’s the sixth proclamation. Church News shared some background on the other proclamations:

  1. Proclamation of the First Presidency to the Saints Scattered Abroad, issued on Jan. 15, 1841. 
  2. Proclamation of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, issued on April 6, 1845.
  3. Proclamation of the First Presidency and the Twelve Apostles, issued on Oct. 21, 1865, in Salt Lake City. 
  4. Proclamation from the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, issued on April 6, 1980.
  5. The Family: A Proclamation to the World, issued Sept. 23, 1995, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
