What is the priesthood?
The priesthood is the eternal power and authority of our Heavenly Father. Through the priesthood, God created and governs the heavens and earth. Through this power He redeems and exalts His children. God grants this power to men on earth and, when they exercise it properly, priesthood bearers do what He would do if He were present.
