Hi I'm Dewain C. Clark

After a life of atheism, agnosticism, and years of skeptical research, I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I love to study theology and the history of world religions. I served the US Navy for over 7 years in positions ranging from Nuclear Electrician to boatswain to yeoman. I Have a BS degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology, and am currently working on my MA in Counseling Psychology. I was raised in a typical inactive Christian home, completely ignorant as to what being a Christian really about. I was taught that I believed in God, but never understood what that even meant. In my early teen years, I realized I was atheist, and that religion was all a scam. Through highschool and college I continued to research and study religion and its history. In time I grew out of atheism, and into agnosticism, and eventually back into Christianity... and here I am, a happily married, joyously active disciple of Jesus Christ!!!

Why I am a Mormon

When I first realized that God could communicate with me, I became happier. As I utilized that relationship more and more, and followed the wonderful guidance I received, I became joyous. When I was inspired to be baptized as Jesus was, and become one with the Saints, I obeyed... and my joy has not stopped growing since...

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures. I listen to the council of the living Prophet, and 12 Apostles. I gather good information and guidance from all sources, then I take it to my Heavenly Father in prayer to know what He would have me do... then I try with all my heart, might, mind, and strength to carry out His will...

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Dewain C. Clark
Of course the Holy Bible is scripture, and it contains much of the word of God, but God's words can hardly be contained in a singular book, nor a vast collection of them. God speaks today as much as He ever has spoken, and the words He speaks to each of us personally, and to His living prophets, are just as important as the writings of His prophets of old.
