“Your chief interest, your essential and all but sole duty, is to teach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as that has been revealed in these latter days. You are to teach this gospel, using as your sources and authorities the standard works of the Church and the words of those whom God has called to lead His people in these last days.”
(The Charted Course of the Church in Education, 1938, Aspen Grove, Utah)
“The objective of religious education in the Church Educational System is to assist the individual, the family, and priesthood leaders in accomplishing the mission of the church by—
1. Teaching students the gospel of Jesus Christ
2. Teaching students by precept and example
3. Providing a spiritual and social climate
4. Preparing young people for effective church service.”
(December 1992, Church
Board of Education)
“We have established the seminary and institute program wherever the Church has gone. It is touching for good the lives of students across the world. In the institutes young college-age students find happy association; they find learning, social experience, and even husbands and wives within the faith.”
(Conference Report, October 2000, 87.)
“God grant that our educational forces, equally yoked together, with our local priesthood leaders, will effectively teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the great youth of the Church.”
(Equally Yoked Together, April 3, 1975, Regional Representatives Seminar)
