JOSEPH SMITH

He is the founder of the Mormon religion and is referred to as The Prophet. “Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it.” (Doctrine and Covenants 135:3) Testifying that Joseph Smith is the true prophet is an essential component in being a member of the LDS Church.
