In 1842 a man named George Barstow wanted to write a book about New Hampshire. He wanted to include a section about the Mormons. He talked to his friend John Wentworth. Mr. Wentworth wrote a letter to Joseph Smith to ask him about the churches beliefs. Joseph responded with his experience of the first vision and many other church information. Joseph ended the letter to Mr. Wentworth with 13 points about what the church believes. These 13 beliefs are now called the Articles of Faith.
