If You Call On Me

Alma 10:28 But that ye would humble yourselves before the Lord and call on His holy name and watch and pray continually, That ye may not be tempted above that which ye can bear; And thus be led by the Holy Spirit, becoming humble, meek, submissive, patient, full of love and all longsuffering, having faith on the Lord,

Alma 12:150 And it came to pass that they did call on the name of the Lord in their might, even until they had all fallen to the earth,

If You Come Unto Me

2 Nephi 11:99 Behold I say unto you, Nay! But He saith: "Come unto Me, all ye ends of the earth, Buy milk and honey without money and without price."

2 Nephi 12:41 Nevertheless, I will be merciful unto them, " saith the Lord God, "if they will repent and come unto Me, For Mine arm is lengthened out all the day long, " saith the Lord God of Hosts.

If you Covenant With Me

Our covenant is to keep his commandments, witnessed by physical baptism in water and spiritual baptism by receiving the Holy Ghost.

Mosiah 9:41 Now, I say unto you, if this be the desires of your hearts, What have you against being baptized in the name of the Lord as a witness before Him that ye have entered into a covenant with Him that ye will serve Him and keep His commandments, that He may pour out His Spirit more abundantly upon you?"

Mosiah 9:44 And when he had said these words, the Spirit of the Lord was upon him and he said: "Helam, I baptize thee, having authority from the Almighty God, as a testimony that ye have entered into a covenant to serve Him until you are dead, as to the mortal body; And may the Spirit of the Lord be poured out upon you, And may He grant unto you eternal life through the redemption of Christ which He hath prepared from the foundation of the world."

Alma 5:27 Yea, come and go forth and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with Him to keep His commandments, And witness it unto Him this day by going into the waters of baptism;

If you Take My Name

3 Nephi 12:18 Have they not read the scriptures which saith, 'Ye must take upon you the name of Christ, ' which is My name? For by this name shall ye be called at the last day, And whoso taketh upon him My name and endureth to the end, the same shall be saved at the last day.
2 Nephi 13:16 Wherefore my beloved brethren, I know that if ye shall follow the Son with full purpose of heart, Acting no hypocrisy and no deception before God, but with real intent, repenting of your sins, Witnessing unto the Father that ye are willing to take upon you the name of Christ by baptism, Yea, by following your Lord and Savior down into the water according to His word, Behold, then shall ye receive the Holy Ghost;

Mosiah 3:11 There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; Therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ - all you that have entered into the covenant with God - that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.

Mosiah 3:13 "And now it shall come to pass that whosoever shall not take upon them the name of Christ must be called by some other name; Therefore, he findeth himself on the left hand of God.

Mosiah 3:15 Therefore, take heed that ye do not transgress, that the name be not blotted out of your hearts.

Mosiah 4:2 And it came to pass that there was not one soul, except it were little children, but what had entered into the covenant and had taken upon them the name of Christ.

Mosiah 7:115 'Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, For the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

2 Nephi 13:29 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, Having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men.

2 Nephi 13:30 Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ and endure to the end, "Behold, " thus saith the Father, "ye shall have eternal life."

If you Always Remember Me

3 Nephi 8:41 And if ye do always remember Me, ye shall have My Spirit to be with you.

Moroni 4:4 "O God, the Eternal Father, We ask Thee in the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it, That they may eat in remembrance of the body of Thy Son, And witness unto Thee, O God, the Eternal Father, That they are willing to take upon them the name of Thy Son, And always remember Him and keep His commandments which He hath given them, That they may always have His Spirit to be with them. Amen."

Moroni 5:3 "O God, the Eternal Father, We ask Thee in the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ to bless and sanctify this wine to the souls of all those who drink of it, That they may do it in remembrance of the blood of Thy Son which was shed for them, That they may witness unto Thee, O God, the Eternal Father, That they do always remember Him, That they may have His Spirit to be with them. Amen."

If you Endure to the End

2 Nephi 13:20 He that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved."

2 Nephi 13:21 And now my beloved brethren, I know by this that unless a man shall endure to the end in following the example of the Son of the living God, he cannot be saved.

2 Nephi 13:30 Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ and endure to the end, "Behold, " thus saith the Father, "ye shall have eternal life."

You Will Be Restored Fully to God

Helaman 4:71 And may God grant in His great fullness that men might be brought unto repentance and good works, That they might be restored unto grace for grace according to their works.

1 Nephi 4:61 Wherefore, the final state of the souls of men is to dwell in the kingdom of God, or to be cast out because of that justice of which I have spoken;

Alma 19:66 And it is requisite with the justice of God that men should be judged according to their works; And if their works were good in this life and the desires of their hearts were good, that they should also at the last day be restored unto that which is good;

Alma 19:67 And if his works are evil, they shall be restored unto him for evil. Therefore, all things shall be restored to its proper order - everything to its natural frame, mortality raised to immortality, corruption to incorruption, Raised to endless happiness, to inherit the kingdom of God, Or, to endless misery, to inherit the kingdom of the devil;
