The First Vision (also called the grove experience) refers to a vision that Joseph Smith, Jr. said he received as a youth in a wooded area in Manchester, New York, which his followers call the Sacred Grove.

Smith described it as a personal theophany in which he received a forgiveness of sins. Smiths followers believe the vision reinforces his authority as the founder and prophet of the Latter Day Saint movement. According to an account Smith told in the 1840s, he went to the woods to pray about which church to join but fell into the grip of an evil power that nearly overtook him.

At the last moment, he was rescued by two shining personages (presumably Jesus and God the Father) who hovered above him. One of the beings told Smith not to join any existing churches because all taught incorrect doctrines.
