Hi I'm Frank

I became a follower of Jesus Christ in 1978. I'm a sports fanatic. I'm the father of 7...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of seven wonderful children. I love sports and especially enjoy baseball. I love to coach and referree basketball too. I graduated from College in 1987 and have a great job with the United States Government.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church in 1978 after my friend in highschool shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with me. I prayed to know if the Gospel was true and received a witness from God. I knew the answer came from beyond myself and that witness has sustained me to this day. Over the years my testimony that this is God's true church has been strengthened. It is only through the saving ordinances of Christ's true church that mankind can be saved. There are a lot of options and a lot of Churches to choose from. I am glad I found the one that provides answers for all of God's children throughout the ages.

How I live my faith

I am grateful to be part of an organization wherein everyone plays a part. I serve in the young men's organization. I don't get paid for what I do and neither does anyone else in the Church including our Bishop, or Pastor. We all serve freely and willing for the cause of Christ.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Frank
It is only through the Grace of Christ that we can be saved. That doesn't mean that we stop serving or give up striving for righteousness. We are saved by a combination of grace and works. A prophet in the Book of Mormon said, "We are saved by grace after all we can do." I believe that. All of us are on the road to salvation. Some are further along than others. It really doesn't matter where you are on the road as long as you are striving to be better. When we die all of us must stand before Christ to be judged. The Book of Revelations teaches that the judgement will be partly based on our works (Rev 20:12). All of us have sinned and are not perfect. It is Christ's Grace that will make up the difference that our efforts or works do not and will not attain. That diference may be more for some than others. Show more Show less
