What scripture says about who Christ is, and how we can return to his presence

Scripture records who Jesus Christ is, and how we can follow him and be saved.  We read a prophecy of his coming by Nephi:

For according to the words of the prophets, the Messiah cometh in six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem; and according to the words of the prophets, and also the word of the angel of God, his name shall be Jesus Christ, the Son of God." (2 Nephi 25:19)

And who he is "And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary. (Mosiah 3:8)

And in modern revelation:
"Of whom we bear record; and the record which we bear is the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who is the Son, whom we saw and with whom we conversed in the heavenly vision." (D&C 76:14)

And finally, we read about following Jesus Christ:

"And as many as repent and are baptized in my name, which is Jesus Christ, and endure to the end, the same shall be saved." (D&C 18:22)

And finally we find out about being saved;
"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." (John 17:3)

May we ever come unto Christ, be baptized by one who has the authority, receive the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ with all its ordinaces, and endure to the end, so that we may be saved, come to know Christ, and return to his presence, and the presence of the Father, is my prayer.
