3 Behold, verily, verily I say unto you, this  is my gospel, and remember that they shall  have faith in me, or they can in no wise be  saved: and upon this Rock I will build my  church; yea, upon this rock ye are built, and  if ye continue, the gates of hell shall not pre vail against you; and ye shall remember the  church articles and covenants to keep them:  and whoso having faith you shall confirm in  my church, by the laying on of the hands, and  I will bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost upon  them. And the book of Mormon, and the ho ly scriptures, are given of me for your instruc tion; and the power of my Spirit quicken[e]th all  things: wherefore be faithful, praying always,  having your lamps trimmed and burning, and  oil with you, that you may be ready at the  coming of the Bridegroom: for behold, verily,  verily I say unto you, that I come quickly;  even so: Amen. [p. 279]
