What did they teach in the church? They taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. What was the gospel Jesus taught?
13 Behold I have given unto you MY GOSPEL, and this is the gospel which I have given unto you—that I came into the world to do the will of my Father, because my Father sent me.
14 And my Father sent me that I might be lifted up upon the cross; and after that I had been lifted up upon the cross, that I might draw all men unto me, that as I have been lifted up by men even so should men be lifted up by the Father, to stand before me, to be judged of their works, whether they be good or whether they be evil—
15 And for this cause have I been lifted up; therefore, according to the power of the Father I will draw all men unto me, that they may be judged according to their works.
16 And it shall come to pass, that whoso REPENTETH and is BAPTIZED in MY NAME shall be filled; and if he ENDURETH TO THE END, behold, him will I hold guiltless before my Father at that day when I shall stand to judge the world.
17 And he that endureth not unto the end, the same is he that is also hewn down and cast into the fire, from whence they can no more return, because of the justice of the Father.
18 And this is the word which he hath given unto the children of men. And for this cause he fulfilleth the words which he hath given, and he lieth not, but fulfilleth all his words.
19 And no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom; therefore nothing entereth into his rest save it be those who have WASHED THEIR GARMENTS IN MY BLOOD, BECAUSE OF THEIR FAITH, AND THE REPENTANCE OF ALL THEIR SINS, AND THEIR FAITHFULNESS UNTO THE END.
20 Now this is the commandment: REPENT, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be BAPTIZED in my name, that ye may be SANCTIFIED by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that ye may stand spotless before me at the last day.
21 Verily, verily, I say unto you, THIS IS MY GOSPEL; and ye know the things that ye must do in my church; for the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do; for that which ye have seen me do even that shall ye do;
22 Therefore, if ye do these things blessed are ye, for ye shall be lifted up at the last day. (3 Nephi 27:13-22)
MY GOSPEL: Repent + Baptized + Sanctified + Endure to the End + Judged = Found Guiltless = Enter God’s Presence
Q. What is the Father’s will?
A. It was Jesus’ doctrine to do Gods will.
31 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, I will declare unto you MY DOCTRINE.
32 And this is MY DOCTRINE, and it is the doctrine which the Father hath given unto me; and I bear record of the Father, and the Father beareth record of me, and the Holy Ghost beareth record of the Father and me; and I bear record that the Father COMMANDETH ALL MEN, everywhere, to REPENT and BELIEVETH IN ME.
33 And whoso BELIEVETH IN ME, and is BAPTIZED, the same shall be SAVED; and they are they who shall INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
34 And whoso believeth not in me, and is not baptized, shall be damned.
35 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is MY DOCTRINE, and I bear record of it from the Father; and whoso BELIEVETH IN ME believeth in the Father also; and unto him will the Father bear record of me, for he will visit him with fire and with the Holy Ghost.
36 And thus will the Father bear record of me, and the Holy Ghost will bear record unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the Holy Ghost are one.
37 And again I say unto you, ye must REPENT, and become as a LITTLE CHILD, and be BAPTIZED in my name, or ye can in NOWISE RECEIVE THESE THINGS.
38 And again I say unto you, ye must REPENT, and be BAPTIZED in my name, and become as a LITTLE CHILD, or ye can in NOWISE INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
39 Verily, verily, I say unto you, that THIS IS MY DOCTRINE, and whoso BUILDETH upon this BUILDETH upon my ROCK, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.
40 And whoso shall declare more or less than this, and establish it for MY DOCTRINE, the same cometh of evil, and is not built upon my rock; but he buildeth upon a sandy foundation, and the gates of hell stand open to receive such when the floods come and the winds beat upon them.
41 Therefore, go forth unto this people, and declare the words which I have spoken, unto the ends of the earth. (3 Nephi 11:31-41)
MY DOCTRINE: Repent > Believe > Little Child > Baptized = Saved
