Sharing the truth of the restored gospel

We are inspired and challenged by the words of Jesus Christ, “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” (Matt. 28:19-20)

Outreach has been a key part of the restored gospel since it was established, with growth throughout the U.S. and its Native American people. Over the years, the work has grown internationally.

Native American

The Church has been given a special commission to preach the restoration of the gospel to the native people of the Americas, who we understand to be descendants of the Tribe of Joseph, one of the 12 tribes of Israel, as chronicled in The Bible and The Book of Mormon.

In The Book of Mormon, the descendants of Joseph are often referenced as “The Seed of Joseph,” and we believe they have been scattered throughout the Americas, the isles of the sea, and to unknown locations throughout the world. Therefore, all of our missionary programs incorporate this special commission.
The Church believes the tribe of Joseph journeyed to the Americas 600 years before Christ. These indigenous peoples, discovered by European explorers, came to be known as Native Americans.

The Church believes, as prophesied in scripture, that Israel will one day accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah and Savior of the world. We call this the “restoration of Israel,” and we believe that restoration will begin with the Seed of Joseph. Missionary work among the Seed of Joseph is a high priority for us.

Our Goal: Take the restored gospel to every indigenous tribe in North and South America.

In the 1800s, the Church began to preach the restored gospel to the Native people of the U.S. and Canada. Missions were established on two reserves in Canada in 1932. Subsequently, Native American missions were established in Arizona in 1961 and in New Mexico in 1971. The Church actively works with Native Americans in urban areas as well as those on reservations. Internationally, the gospel has been established among the Seed of Joseph in Mexico, Guatemala, the Caribbean and South America.
