    Prophet of God

    Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

    Apostle, 2004–present

    Testimony of Joseph Smith

    "As one of the weakest of the weak, I testify that God lives. I testify and witness that Jesus is the Christ. He is our Redeemer and our Savior, and He lives. And I testify that the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His true Church have been restored to the earth in these latter days through the Prophet Joseph Smith. Priesthood keys and authority and saving ordinances are again found on the earth. By the power of that priesthood, families truly can be together forever. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and the keystone of our religion." ("In the Strength of the Lord," October 2004 general conference.)
