Uniting families for eternity.
We have the privilege and responsibility to help unite their families for eternity (see Matthew 16:19).
We first prepare ourselves to make covenants as we receive temple ordinances, and then strive to keep those covenants. We also help others understand, receive, and strive to keep temple covenants. Parents have the primary responsibility to help their children experience the blessings of temple and family history service for deceased family members.
We then perform the ordinances on behalf of those deceased relatives who need them (see Doctrine and Covenants 128:18). In the spirit world, deceased individuals can choose to accept or reject the ordinances that have been performed for them.
Making your own temple covenants
You are invited to make sacred covenants during the endowment. In return, Heavenly Father promises that if you remain faithful to these covenants, you will be endowed “with power from on high.”
