The Church represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a forum through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Our mission is to teach the Gospel to all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things commanded by Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20) and to draw Israel to Jesus Christ through an effort focused on the Native Americans of North and South
While we respect the freedom of choice as it applies to religious beliefs, we invite all who are seeking truth and sincerely interested in the simplicity of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, to explore our web site; who we are, and how, through Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice, all men and women might find eternal salvation.
May the Lord bless your heart and mind,
Today's article, by Sister Stefanie Arcuri, is part of the GMBA Camp In. Be sure to check the calendar below for today's events.
I was born and raised in The Church of Jesus Christ and started attending GMBA Camps as a baby. I am 31 years old, and I have been to about 26 GMBA Camps. There are so many blessings that came from all of those Camps.
As a child, I remember the kids’ choir (I still sing some of those songs to my kids) and games and making friends. As a teenager, GMBA Camp was a place where I built friendships with people from all over the country, felt the Spirit of God for the first time, and where I was baptized.
GMBA Camp was held in Saginaw, Michigan, in 2002, and it was Wednesday morning in seminar. I felt God calling me that day and had the elders lay hands on me, asking the Lord for confirmation of what I felt. The minister who was praying for me said he could physically feel the Spirit of God in me as he lay his hands on my head. I was baptized the next morning by my grandfather. For the following few years, I used Camp as a rejuvenation for the year to come until the next Camp.
Today is the official start of the 2020 GMBA Camp In! Since we cannot have our annual in-person campout this summer, the GMBA has arranged a week full of online events that the young people can attend while homebound. (Scroll to the bottom of this post for a calendar of events.) That includes daily blog articles from guest writers that touch on the camp's theme: The Power of God.
Today's welcome article comes to you from the GMBA Officers, Brothers Jim Lambert, Lucas Martorana and Jason Monaghan.
“...for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10)
When you think of GMBA Campout, there are many things that may come in your mind: maybe it’s the excitement and anticipation of making travel plans or filling out the registration form, writing down your roommate requests. Maybe it’s that feeling of arriving on campus and following the “GMBA Campout” signs to the check-in location. Maybe your mind jumps to the moments of greeting and meeting brothers and sisters that you haven’t seen in years, while having suitcases and bags in both your arms. Maybe it’s the moment in your seminar class when walls begin to crumble, the feeling of being part of the GMBA choir, or the late-night conversations you have in the hallways outside of your room.
