Doctrinal Mastery focuses on two outcomes;
1. Learning and applying divine principles for acquiring spiritual knowledge. These principles include acting in faith, examining concepts and questions with an eternal perspective and seeking further understanding through divinely appointed sources. We will learn to seek answers to doctrinal and historical questions in a way that invites the Holy Ghost to strengthen our faith.
2. Mastering the doctrine of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the scripture passages in which that doctrine is taught.
This outcome is achieved by;
A. Developing a deeper understanding of each of the following topics: > The Godhead > The Plan of Salvation > The Atonement of Jesus Christ > The Restoration > Prophets and revelation > Priesthood and priesthood keys > Ordinances and covenants > Marriage and family > Commandments
B. Knowing how the statements of doctrine are taught in doctrinal mastery scripture passages and being able to remember and locate those passages.
C. Explaining each statement of doctrine clearly, using the associated doctrinal mastery passages.
D. Applying what we learn in our daily choices and in our responses to doctrinal, social and historical issues and questions.
The purpose of the Doctrinal Mastery is to help our youth understand and rely on the teaching and Atonement of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives.
