Leaders of the Church will speak.  Their messages will center on Jesus Christ.  They will bear witness that Jesus Christ lives – that He was born of Mary, that He died, and rose again on the third day.  They will testify that Christ is the Lord – the Savior and Redeemer of the world – and that only through Him and by Him can mankind be saved. 

The First Presidency will also remind everyone that Jesus Christ is the light of the world.  As they celebrate His birth, everyone will be encouraged to make Christmastime a “season of service” – to light the world in 25 ways, over 25 days.  To learn more about #LightTheWorld, please visit
