Defender of the Faith
If I can only fight the good fight of faith, and lay hold of eternal life, then all is right.1
As a child John Taylor saw a vision of an angel with a trumpet to his lips, sharing a message with the world. John didn’t know the meaning of the vision, but he kept it close to his heart as he grew up.
Teaching about Christ was his favorite thing to do, and, at the age of seventeen, he became a Methodist minister in England. But he knew Heavenly Father wanted him to preach in America.
After he joined the LDS Faith, he shared his testimony through the spoken and written word in many places on the earth: England, France and Germany, in addition to cities in America such as Nauvoo, New York City and in the Salt Lake Valley. He now knew the message of the angel with the trumpet and took it to the world.
