Temples are holy, sacred houses of the Lord where we receive sacred ordinances and learn more about the Savior and His gospel. While the public is welcome in our chapels for various activities and for Sunday worship, access to completed and dedicated temples is limited to members of the Church who have met certain standards of belief and behavior. We understand that this limitation perhaps creates a sense of curiosity for others not of our faith. There is much information that might be helpful in understanding more about the purpose of temples and their importance in our worship.
