What is Zion?
The Lord commands us to “seek to bring forth and establish the cause of Zion” (D&C 6:6). Zion refers to the Lord’s people who are of one heart and one mind and dwell together in righteousness. We can establish Zion by building unity and spiritual strength in our homes, wards or branches, and communities.
Scriptures to Mark
4 Nephi 1:1–18 (The Nephites and Lamanites live together in a Zion-like state)
