BREAKING: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released new general handbook

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released a new handbook on Feb. 19.

According to the letter sent from the First Presidency to leaders of the Church, “Key elements include:

  • Continuing an emphasis on helping all come unto Christ.
  • Organizing content around Heavenly Father’s work of salvation and exaltation.
  • Providing greater flexibility to simplify programs and adapt to local needs.
  • Making all content available to everyone.
  • Providing instructional videos and helpful links to other Church resources.”

There are nine chapters to the new manual, which replaces both Handbook 1 and Handbook 2.

According to the frequently asked questions released with the letter, “The guiding principles of the General Handbook are (1) facilitating global adaptability; (2) using a ministerial voice; (3) providing learner support, such as graphics and tables; (4) giving enhanced accessibility; and (5) supporting a revelatory mindset.”

The new handbook is available to everyone: leaders, members and nonmembers alike so that all can see how the Church operates. The handbook can be found here.
