"We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God."

It is clear that the ancients must have had more knowledge of the Gospel than the Bible directly intimates. Consequently, not all revelation is contained in the Bible.
  • Joseph Smith, compiled by Joseph Fielding Smith, "Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith", p. 69
Referring to the desolation of abominations, Joseph Smith stated:
"Then, if this is the case, and if we are not sanctified and gathered to the places God has appointed, with all our former professions and our great love of the Bible, we must fall."
  • Joseph Smith, compiled by Joseph Fielding Smith, "Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith", pp. 119-120
"'Do you believe the Bible?'
If we do, we are the only people under heaven that does, for there are none of the religious sects of the day that do.
'Wherein do you differ from other sects?'
In that we believe the Bible, and all other sects profess to believe their interpretation of the Bible, and their creeds."
