"We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth."
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's church on the earth! The church is set up exactly like the church Jesus Christ established when he was teaching on the earth. (For more on the common organization, see my blog post "The Church of Jesus Christ"). There are prophets and apostles today! This is possible through the restoration of the priesthood. Three of Christ's original apostles laid their hands on Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery and gave them the authority of God. (For more on this see, "Priesthood Restoration" from a modern prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley).
|We will have the chance to hear from the current prophet, Thomas S. Monson, at General Conference on April 2nd and 3rd|
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints has "the same organization that existed in the primitive church" because the two have the same founder: our Lord and Savior. They are the same church, led by Jesus Christ and built on His doctrine!
