the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of
sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost. 5 We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy,
and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that
Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory. 11 We claim
the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same
privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. 12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and
magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law. 13 We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous,
and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all
things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good
report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. - JOSEPH SMITH.
