Mormons accept the Bible (Old and New Testaments) as the word of God, as far as it is translated correctly. Additionally, we believe the Book of Mormon (BOM), another testament of Jesus Christ, to be the word of God. While we consider the teachings of both these books to be sacred, we recognize that neither is infallible.
The Book of Mormon is not a substitute for the Bible; rather, it is additional scripture used together with the Bible. Just as God revealed Himself to the ancient Israelites, He also revealed Himself to the inhabitants of the American continent. The Book of Morman is the story of this American people. ()
As of 2004, The BOM had been published in over 100 languages. Since its first publication in 1830, over 120 million copies have been produced. Over 4 million were distributed in 2004 alone.
