"And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught."

Mark 6:30

"Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."

Ephesians 2:19-22

The Salt Lake Temple Apostles Room


The Salt Lake Temple Apostles Room

The Apostles Room is located on the administration floor of the Salt Lake Temple.

In this room, the Quorum of Twelve Apostles and the First Presidency meet weekly to pray, seek guidance and inspiration of The Lord, and discuss the spiritual and temporal affairs of the Church. Their meetings begin with a hymn, a prayer and they take the sacrament. Here's some church trivia for you. Any decision made by the First Presidency and Apostles must receive a unanimous vote. This is in the spirit of the New Testament apostles being of one accord.

The altars of the temple are an emblem of Jesus Christ, so as the apostles kneel to pray at the altar they are figuratively kneeling before Christ. It's also a visual representation of Christ presiding over the leadership of the church.
