"I confess that I do not know everything, but of some things I am certain. Of the things of which I know, I speak to you this morning."

"... One of the great overarching doctrines of this church is our belief in God the Eternal Father."

"The second great certitude of which I am sure also has its foundation in the vision of the Prophet Joseph. It is that Jesus lives, he is the living Christ. He is the Jehovah of the Old Testament and the Messiah of the New."

With the Book of Mormon, "I would think that every Christian would welcome this second witness of the reality of Jesus Christ. Strangely they do not."

"Now, the next thing of which I am certain, and of which I bear witness, is the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ. Without it life is meaningless. It is the keystone in the arch of our existence."

"I speak next of the great certitudes that have come with the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is the restoration of the priesthood, or the authority given man to speak in the name of God."

"Now, finally, I mention the blessings of the house of the Lord, which has come of the restoration of the ancient gospel."

"These temples, which we have greatly multiplied in recent years, offer blessings that are had nowhere else."
