Our church not shrouded in mystery — Latter-Day Saints

The leadership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in West Africa has debunked the assertion that the church is a mystical entity stressing that it is a normal church like all other denominations in the country.

It, therefore, urged Ghanaians to regard the church as a place for the worship of God through Jesus Christ and therefore, underscored the need to demystify the myth that surrounds various branches of the church in the country.

“We are like any other churches, we take a monthly tithe of ten percent, we worship God through Jesus Christ and we have rules and regulations governing the church based on biblical principles,” Elder Larry Kacher, the first Counselor, on behalf of the Africa West Area President, Elder Hugo Martinez told the Daily Graphic during a media soiree at the church’s West Africa Headquarters at North Ridge, Accra last Thursday.

He also revealed that the church had a blueprint for the youth with respect to jobs and networking.

The Assistant Director of Communication of the church, Charles Igolo, said the name of the church could only be written in two ways, “the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day-Saints or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”.

He also delved into the use of the word saints for members of the church saying in the new testament the apostles most often referred to the members of the church as saints, hence the name Latter-day Saints connoted modern or current church members.

Members of the media were taken through a tour of the sprawling facility which is officially the headquarters of the church in the Africa West Area located at Ridge, Accra.
