3 Nephi 27:1 And it came to pass that as the disciples of Jesus were journeying and were preaching the things which they had both heard and seen and were baptizing in the name of Jesus, it came to pass that the disciples were gathered together and were united in mighty prayer and fasting.
3 Nephi 27:2 And Jesus again shewed himself unto them, for they were praying unto the Father in his name. And Jesus came and stood in the midst of them and saith unto them: What will ye that I shall give unto you?
3 Nephi 27:3 And they saith unto him: Lord, we will that thou wouldst tell us the name whereby we shall call this church, for there are disputations among the people concerning this matter.
3 Nephi 27:4 And the Lord said unto them: Verily verily I say unto you: Why is it that the people should murmur and dispute because of this thing?
3 Nephi 27:5 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.
3 Nephi 27:6 And whoso taketh upon him my name and endureth to the end, the same shall be saved at the last day.
3 Nephi 27:7 Therefore whatsoever ye shall do, ye shall do it in my name. Therefore ye shall call the church in my name. And ye shall call upon the Father in my name, that he will bless the church for my sake.
3 Nephi 27:8 And how be it my church save it be called in my name? For if a church be called in Moses' name, then it be Moses' church. Or if it be called in the name of a man, then it be the church of a man. But if it be called in my name, then it is my church, if it so be that they are built upon my gospel.
3 Nephi 27:9 Verily I say unto you that ye are built upon my gospel; therefore ye shall call whatsoever things ye do call, in my name. Therefore if ye call upon the Father for the church, if it be in my name, the Father will hear you.
3 Nephi 27:10 And if it so be that the church is built upon my gospel, then will the Father shew forth his own works in it.
3 Nephi 27:11 But if it be not built upon my gospel and is built upon the works of men or upon the works of the devil, verily I say unto you: They have joy in their works for a season; and by and by the end cometh, and they are hewn down and cast into the fire from whence there is no return.
3 Nephi 27:12 For their works do follow them, for it is because of their works that they are hewn down. Therefore remember the things that I have told you.
3 Nephi 27:13 Behold, I have given unto you my gospel. And this is the gospel which I have given unto you, that I came into the world to do the will of my Father, because my Father sent me.
