SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is holding its 190th Annual General Conference from April 4-5. This blog summarizes the key points from each session.
It has been 200 years since the church’s founder, Joseph Smith, said he saw God and Jesus Christ — a foundational event for the church that would become known as the "First Vision." April’s conference celebrates that anniversary, and before the conference, President Nelson urged members to spiritually prepare for the event.
Unlike past conferences, April’s is focused on a central theme, namely, the "Restoration" — or what Latter-day Saints believe defines when Jesus Christ’s church was restored on the earth, and is the ongoing revelation given to church leaders and members today. And, because of the spread of COVID-19, this is the first time the conference will be held through technology only.
