“And all things shall be done by Common Consent in the Church by much prayer and faith for all things ye shall receive by faith and thus it is amen.” -Doctrines of the Saints 20b:2
When the Church of Christ was organized April 6, 1830 the Bible, Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha, and the Book of Mormon were unanimously accepted as scripture. Later, August 17, 1835 select revelations from Joseph Smith were unanimously accepted as scripture. These were later printed in the 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants. On April 6, 2019 and 2020 the General Assembly of the Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship voted and sustained additional books and revelations officially canon for use in our ministry.
The following is a list of canonized scripture:
The Holy Bible is a collection of the oldest of God’s words to mankind. It consists of the writings of the ancient Jews, including the Christian Jews that followed Christ and their message to the gentiles . “Bible” is a plural Greek word meaning “Books.”
The Book of Mormon is a sacred text for the Latter Day Saint movement. It was first published in March 1830 by Joseph Smith as “The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi.” We have added “The Fullness of the Gospel, The New Covenant of Jesus Christ” to the title.
The Doctrine and Covenants (or DaC) is a part of the open scriptural canon of several denominations of the Latter Day Saint movement. The 1835 edition contains two parts: seven lectures addressing basic Church doctrine, and a compilation of revelations given to the Church.
The Book of Enoch, or 1 Enoch, is an ancient religious work that was once a part of the Jewish and Christian canons. This edition adds the extract from the Prophecy of Enoch given to us by revelation from Joseph Smith Jr.
The history of the Latter Day Saints, a collective of restorational Christian denominations, begins with the shared history found within the Book of Avahr. “Avahr” is Hebrew for “past.” This book tells the story of Joseph Smith Jr.; his birth, obtaining, and “translating” (divining) the Gold Plates into the sacred text we know today as the Everlasting Gospel: The Book of Mormon.
The first portion of this book, “The Book of Remembrance,” is a series of revelations give to help guide readers in preparing for and understanding the purpose of the Endowments. The second portion of the book, “Other Dream and Visions” is a short history of the David’s journey as a boy to the founding of the Fellowship of Christ. The final portion, “Revelations,” is a collection of other revelations given to David or to others through him.
The revelations of Havah Pratt were voted on and sustained as canon for use in the Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship by the Assembly of Saints April 6, 2020.
The Doctrine of the Saints is a collection of revelations from a wide variety of prophets from the Latter Day Saint movement to teach and instruct those that have come to Christ within the Fellowship of Christ, to prepare the way for the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
