To consecrate means to dedicate to a sacred purpose. In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, consecration has two applications. Members believe they are under covenant to consecrate both a portion of their possessions and themselves to building and strengthening the kingdom of God.

Throughout the history of the earth, the Lord’s people have sought to be “of one heart and one mind, . . with no poor among them” (Moses 7:18). Therefore, they gave of their possessions to the Church and its purposes. The people of the city of Enoch (Moses 7:17–18) and some of the early Christians are examples of members of the Lord’s Church who sought to care for each other:

The Book of Mormon tells of an ancient American civilization that enjoyed a period of time when “the people were all converted unto the Lord, upon all the face of the land, both Nephites and Lamanites, and there were no contentions and disputations among them, and every man did deal justly one with another. And they had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free, but they were all made free, and partakers of the heavenly gift” (4 Nephi 1:2–3).
