Continued Revelations

We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God, and the Messiah’s Second coming. -Ninth Article of Faith

God continues to speak to man today. In the Latter Day Saint movement this means a number of things. First, it means all may receive personal revelations. It is through revelation that we know of the reality of Christ (Galatians 1:12). Second, it means that the majority of Latter Day Saint denominations are led by prophets and/or apostles.

The Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship does not have a Doctrine and Covenants if it’s own at this time. We currently use the 1844 edition, and both the Church of Jesus Chrsit of Latter-day Saints and Community of Christ Doctrine and Covenants. Portions of the Doctrine and Covenants can be found in the Book of Avahr, and the work of compiling the Doctrines of the Saints .

For the time being, both the Latter-day Saint and Community of Christ Doctrine and Covenants are used in the Fellowship. We refer to these records for revelations and sustained documents from April 6, 1830 on. We do not see the Latter-day Saint’s Official Declarations as canon as both refer to policies never practiced in the Fellowship, namely excluding “blacks” from the priesthood, and teaching polygamy as a saving ordinance. We follow the teachings of the original Church, ordaining all called of God regardless of race, sexual orientation, or gender.

Further, the Fellowship continues the tradition of revelation through the prophet David, the First Elder of the Fellowship, the prophetess Kristine, Elect Lady of the Fellowship, revelations from the Apostles of the Fellowship, and by sharing revelations from others within the whole Latter Day Saint Movement. The Fellowship exists because of revelation. It is through revelation that the Book of Avahr, and the Book of Remembrance were created.
