View selected quotes from this page in Wilford Woodruff's journal.

A Saul might hear the voice of the Lord from heaven or a Cornelius be blessed with the ministration of a holy angel; but, though they had been thus favored, to fulfill and comply with all the requirements of the Lord, it was necessary for them to be baptized to obtain remission of sins, that they might become the recipients of the Holy Ghost through the ordinance of the laying on of hands, and be enabled to walk in newness of life. If they had not complied with this requirement, they would not have been in a suitable condition to have entered into the kingdom of God.
~ Orson Pratt
We want to sacrifice enough to do the will of God in prepar- ing to bring up those who have not had the privilege of hear- ing the gospel while in the flesh, for the simple reason that, in the spirit world, they cannot officiate in the ordinances of the house of God. They have passed the ordeals, and are beyond the possibility of personally officiating for the remission of their sins and for their exaltation, consequently they are under the necessity of trusting in their friends, their children and their children's children to officiate for them, that they may be brought up into the celestial kingdom of God.
~ George Q Cannon
The conditions of salvation from death, hell and the grave, are faith in God, in Jesus Christ, and in the atonement; re- pentance, reformation, and a godly life; baptism by immer- sion for the remission of sins administered by divine authority, the sanctifying effects of the blood of Chirst that follows the water, and the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands by properly ordained ministers. These conditions are as essential to salvation in the kingdom of heaven to-day, as they were in the days when Christ and His apostles and elders declared them nearly nineteen hundred years ago. The same authority has been restored to the earth. The same apostle- ship and keys of priesthood, with power to officiate in the ordinances of the house of God, are again restored to earth, and the gospel of God is being preached in all nations for a witness.
