The beginning of the Restoration of Christ's Church on the earth came in the early 1800's. After retiring to the woods to pray and ask God which church was right, the following happened- In Joseph's words "I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me. It no sooner appeared than I found myself delivered from the enemy which held me bound. When the light rested upon me I saw two Personages, whose brightness and glory defy all description, standing above me in the air. One of them spake unto me, calling me by name and said, pointing to the other—This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!"
Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ, and was the instrument through which God restored the same New Testament church to the earth again in its purity. You can read more about that by clicking the link below to read this history, or read the Book of Mormon online now.
