About the Conference (Update 2/7/2017)

We are pleased to announce a conference in St. George, Utah, USA to celebrate the Doctrine of Jesus Christ.

This conference is open to all people, everywhere, who wish to meet together in fellowship and worship of Jesus Christ. It will consist of two well-organized, large group meetings, and an evening social that will include the sacrament, a few planned testimonies, a testimony meeting, and unscheduled time to socialize.

The Speakers that are confirmed include John Pratt, Quintina BearChief-Adolpho, Rob Adolpho, Denver Snuffer, Jeanene Custer, and a report from Karen Strong on the Temple Fund.

We are encouraging most to attend the Saturday and Sunday Events. Monday at the Parowan Gap will be very small in comparison and will only involve a short hike and prayer. Click here to see the schedule.

Hosted By:

We are a group of friends and fellow believers in the Doctrine of Christ. We are not a formal organization or fellowship, nor are we affiliated with any organized religion. We believe in the doctrine of Christ, as taught in the Book of Mormon. 

We are mostly located in the St George and Southern Utah area, yet we have many from all across the Western United States that are assisting in this effort to host a conference in St. George Utah, in March 2017. We hope to allow similar believers from all over the world to meet together in person, learn and grow together, and be taught by the Spirit of the Lord.

We are providing this website as a service to help spread the word about the upcoming conference.

No one person is alone in the effort to create this site or this conference. Behind the scenes there are many who are serving in numerous capacities, both from within our local fellowship and without.

St. George, Utah

Who Should Attend?

Anyone and everyone who has a desire to learn and follow the doctrine of Jesus Christ in their lives.

Said our Lord:

“And this is my doctrine, and it is the doctrine which the Father hath given unto me; and I bear record of the Father, and the Father beareth record of me, and the Holy Ghost beareth record of the Father and me; and I bear record that the Father commandeth all men, everywhere, to repent and believe in me.

“And whoso believeth in me, and is baptized, the same shall be saved; and they are they who shall inherit the kingdom of God. And whoso believeth not in me, and is not baptized, shall be damned.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my doctrine, and I bear record of it from the Father; and whoso believeth in me believeth in the Father also; and unto him will the Father bear record of me, for he will visit him with fire and with the Holy Ghost.

“And thus will the Father bear record of me, and the Holy Ghost will bear record unto him of the Father and me; for the Father, and I, and the Holy Ghost are one.

“And again I say unto you, ye must repent, and become as a little child, and be baptized in my name, or ye can in nowise receive these things. And again I say unto you, ye must repent, and be baptized in my name, and become as a little child, or ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, that this is my doctrine, and whoso buildeth upon this buildeth upon my rock, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them. And whoso shall declare more or less than this, and establish it for my doctrine, the same cometh of evil, and is not built upon my rock; but he buildeth upon a sandy foundation, and the gates of hell stand open to receive such when the floods come and the winds beat upon them.”
—Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi 11:32-40

If you are planning to fly in to the conference, flights into Las Vegas are the least expensive option. Las Vegas is 1 ½ hours from St. George.

Rental cars are less expensive in Las Vegas than in St. George. Costco.com has good prices for both flights and rental cars. Make sure you're on the official Costco site and not some other travel site.

St. George is a popular vacation destination with numerous activities regularly happening in the area.

There are many beautiful places to visit while in St. George like Zion's National Park and Snow Canyon State Park.
