This site is intended to be mainly a question and answer format concerning the use of the Priesthood outside of a church structure. It is intended to answer questions about jurisdiction and alleviate concerns about following the Lord’s commands in modern-day scripture, despite what policies men implement in handbooks or otherwise in their churches or societies.
We understand this may put others at odds with their ecclesiastical leaders, or with other family members, so we have tried to develop answers from the scriptures that may help avoid contention and disharmony. We realize not all conflicts can be avoided, and if there is a greater need to maintain a relationship and avoid stirring up arguments and disagreements, than this information is probably best left for another time. Go and serve others and serve God.
But, if you already believe there is more to be gained from the scriptures than what you currently are being taught, and struggle to find ways to approach difficult subjects, than this site may be a worthwhile resource for you.
In any event, this site is also to help facilitate publishing the good news of God’s ongoing work, and to connect the people of Cache Valley, Utah (or anyone else, for that matter), to authoritative baptism or re-baptism according to the doctrine of Christ, by proper authority from those who hold the Priesthood of God and are willing to perform the ordinances according to the Lord’s prescribed way in the scriptures (3 Nephi 11:21-30).
If you have any questions that you feel would be good to have answered, or have a good answer to a difficult problem regarding baptism and re-baptism, then feel free to send in a comment. If there is value enough for a post to address the concern, we will try our best to respond, but most, if not all, answers can be found in the standard works and the Prophet Joseph Smith’s teachings.
This site is not an attempt to cover all of the bases and we don’t pretend to have all of the answers either, but firmly believe the resounding declaration of the Restoration itself, “if anyone lack wisdom, let him ask of God” (James 1:5).
