Philadelphia Pennsylvania Mormon Temple

mormon templeOne of the main characteristics of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) is the work performed in the Church's holy temples. This work sets apart the Mormon Church from every other religion on the face of the earth.


“The temple is a place of instruction where profound truths pertaining to the Kingdom of God are unfolded. It is a place of peace where minds can be centered upon things of the spirit and the worries of the world can be laid aside. In the temple we take covenants to obey the laws of God, and promises are made to us, conditioned always on our faithfulness, which extend into eternity” Read More of this Post.
