no. The LDS Church does not believe in baptism until a child reaches the age of accountability, or the age of eight.
Verses eight and nine say "...wherefore, little children are whole, for they are not capable of committing sin; wherefore the curse of Adam is taken from them in me, that it hath no power over them... I know that it is solemn mockery before God, that ye should baptize little children."
faith, hope and charity. Faith is the first principle of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Moroni 7:42 says, "Wherefore, if a man have faith he must needs have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope." Charity is "the pure love of Christ." (Moroni 7:47) The Relief Society has as their motto "Charity Never Faileth". Faith, hope and charity are attributes every member of the LDS Church strives to obtain.
|The second principle of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is talked about in chapter six. What is the principle?||The Book of Moroni
repentance. It is believed that in order to go to heaven, you must repent of all of your sins. It is also required to repent before you can be baptized.

In return we are promised that [we] may always have his Spirit to be with [us]." (quotes from Moroni 4:3)
|The instructions for ordaining to the office of the Priesthood are found in chapter three. Which office is NOT mentioned?||The Book of Moroni
deacons. Chapter three reads:
"1 The manner which the disciples, who were called the elders of the church, ordained priests and teachers-
2 After they had prayed unto the Father in the name of Christ, they laid their hands upon them, and said:
3 In the name of Jesus Christ I ordain you to be a priest, (or, if he be a teacher) I ordain you to be a teacher, to preach repentance and remission of sins through Jesus Christ, by the endurance of faith on his name to the end. Amen.
4 And after this manner did they ordain priests and teachers, according to the gifts and callings of God unto men; and they ordained them by the power of the Holy Ghost, which was in them."
Neither Deacons nor high priests, other offices in the church, are mentioned in this chapter.

When Christ visited the Americas, he instructed his disciples: "Ye shall call on the Father in my name, in mighty prayer; and after ye have done this ye shall have power that to him upon whom ye shall lay your hands, ye shall give the Holy Ghost; and in my name shall ye give it, for thus do mine apostles." (Moroni 2:2)
the Lamanites. At this point, the Nephites have been completely destroyed, leaving Moroni alone among enemies determined to hunt him down and kill him. He writes these last things and includes a few epistles of his father, Mormon.
The end of Moroni 1:4 reads, "...but I write a few more things, that perhaps they may be of worth unto my brethren, the Lamanites, in some future day, according to the will of the Lord."
