, an Apostle
is a person ordained to be a special witness
of Jesus Christ, to govern and administer to the entire Church and to hold the highest Priesthood
authority in the Church for life. In Mormon theology, modern-day apostles have the same status and authority as the Biblical apostles
In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the largest and most well-known Mormon religion, there is a Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In addition, the three members of the First Presidency, the highest governing body of the Church, are considered to be apostles.
