Alma’s discourse on faith as recorded in Alma 32 is continued in Alma 33 and culminates with a declaration of faith. His seven-part statement of belief in Christ focuses on the atoning mission of Jesus as God’s divine son. These articles of faith, what one might well call the core of the Nephite Creed, constitute the “word” spoken of in Alma 32 that followers of Christ should plant in their hearts. Alma can therefore be read as explaining first how to believe (Alma 32) and then what to believe (Alma 33). It is important to plant and nourish the right seed in order to grow the desired plant.
