Share the story of Alma teaching and baptizing at the Waters of Mormon (Mosiah 18:8-11). We read the version that was shared in the June 2013 Friend magazine.
- Our baptismal covenant is a sacred two-way promise with Heavenly Father.
- We promise to keep His commandments and serve Him. We take upon us the name of Jesus Christ and become members of His Church.
- In return, we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and the promise of eternal life as we repent and prove faithful.
