Official policies and announcements

The Lord has commanded His people in all ages of the world to build temples "that the Son of Man might have a place to manifest himself to his people" (D&C109:5). Temples play a major role in perfecting the Saints and in redeeming the dead. In temples worthy Saints receive the highest ordinances of the gospel for themselves and for those who did not receive them in mortality. Priesthood leaders should encourage members to -

Receive the ordinances of the temples for themselves- Return to the temple often to provide ordinances for their ancestors and others.
