           “For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that   he is the Only Begotten of the Father—
            “That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the   inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God.”
             (D&C 76:19–24.)

There are also prophets and apostles on the earth today. This is their testimony of Christ.
The Living Christ The Testimony of the Apostles
We bear testimony, as His duly ordained Apostles—that Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His Father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son.
