Why Joseph Smith's first vision?
Joseph Smith's first vision is what started the Restorationism movement. The denominations who teach of Joseph Smith's first vision vary in their accounts, but all agree that the vision presents some key doctrines that are missing in the majority of Christian denominations today. These key doctrines are that God speaks to men today as he did in Biblical times, and that mainstream Christianity has apostatized from the will of God.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (often called the "Mormon" Church) and some of it's offshoots teach that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the vision, and that they had flesh and bones. The Community of Christ and some of their offshoots teach that Joseph saw a light and heard a voice. Either way, Joseph Smith's first vision paved the way for a new branch of Christianity- one that teaches that God still speaks, there are prophets today just as in ancient times, and that God has more to say to His children than only what is contained in the Bible.
