Devon Park Restoration Branch is a branch of the restored church that teaches, promotes, and practices fullness of the gospel and the original doctrines of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
We teach the six fundamental principles of faith toward God, repentance from dead works, baptisms (by water & Spirit), laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
Located in a park like setting, Devon Park has a lovely sanctuary built by the able hands of it's own members! Striking stained glass windows remind visitors of the truth of God's promises and the beauty of His creation. We also own a nice piece of land and the fellowship hall next door, just up the hill and across the parking lot from the main church building.
Our goal is to prepare ourselves and encourage others to live by the celestial law.
We invite all to come, worship and fellowship with us as we endeavor to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
EPITOME OF FAITH
We believe in God the Eternal Father, and in his Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgressions.
We believe that through atonement of Christ all mankind may be saved by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel.
We believe that these ordinances are, first, faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, repentance; third, baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost
We believe that a man must be called of God by "prophecy, and by laying on of hands" by those who are in authority to preach the gospel and administer the ordinances thereof.
We believe in the same organization that existed in the primitive church; viz., apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, etc.
We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, etc.
We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
We believe all that God has revealed, all that he does now reveal, and we believe that he will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes, that Zion will be built upon this continent, that Christ will reign personally upon the earth, and that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisaic glory.
We claim privilege of worshipping Almighty God according to the dictates of our consciences, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.
We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law.
We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul, "we believe all things, we hope all things," we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
