“There Is None Other Name under Heaven Given among Men, Whereby We Must Be Saved”

Acts 4:10–12

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

President David O. McKay said:

“Nearly two thousand years ago, Christ’s chief apostle on one occasion, when he was arraigned before the Jews for having healed an impotent man, made the following declaration:

“‘Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

“‘This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

“‘Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved’ (Acts 4:10–12).

“That was a most dramatic occasion, and it took strength and fearlessness to make that statement to those men, some of whom had participated in Christ’s crucifixion.”
