Hi I'm Brad

I'm a student. I don't know what I'll be when I grow up. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've just started medical school and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for my career. I will probably end up in being a doctor/businessman mix, but I'm not quite sure. I love the outdoors and regularly go river rafting with my family and friends. I love singing and spending time with people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it makes me happy. As I have attended this church and lived by the things it teaches, I have become a happier person. I enjoy waking up in the morning and facing a new day. My family has drawn closer together as we worship in this church. This is where I feel closest to God and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I work in a research lab part-time and am a full time student. In general, I try to follow the Savior's example as I interact with everyone around me. I also volunteer with patients in a hospice program that I started. At church, I am in charge of the Sunday school lessons. Right now we are working our way through the Old Testament in the King James Bible. Soon, we will study the New Testament, and then Book of Mormon, which also teaches about Jesus Christ.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Brad
There are a few options. First, I would ask around. There is a good chance you or a friend may know a Mormon. We always welcome questions. This website is another good resource to find more about the Mormon Church. You can also request that some Church representatives meet with you to explain more about what the Church teaches. Church representatives=regular people or missionaries in your town. I was a "church representative." for two years Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Brad
The religion is based on Jesus Christ. His sacrifice for our sins and His rising from the tomb are at the center of my beliefs. He is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. Show more Show less

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

Brad
We believe in the Bible as the word of God. We read out of it, study from it, and use it in lessons at church. I personally love the Bible for its stories about Jesus Christ when He was in Jerusalem. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Brad
Mormons believe that we can be with our families in heaven. Since I am going to spend all of eternity with my family, I want to make sure I have a good relationship with my family! I can't imagine anyone else I would rather spend time with. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Brad
It's awesome! I love the "refresh" I get when I go to church on Sundays. While there are things that I've given up, I would be surprised and concerned if God didn't as us to change to become better people. Another thing that I love is the good people you meet when you visit the Mormon church. Wherever you go in the world, you will find great group of people who are almost instant friends.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Brad
Nope! We worship God and Jesus Christ. God called Joseph Smith to be a prophet (think of Moses) to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. People didn't worship biblical prophets, so it follows that we don't worship Joseph Smith. Like the people who listened to Moses, we listen to the prophets God calls today. Show more Show less

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Brad
It is the church of Jesus Christ. When Christ was on the earth, he set up an organization to teach His message. He gave Peter and the other apostles the job to go and spread the message. While some listened, eventually the world ignored the apostles and changed Christ's original organization to fit their own ideas. Hence the many different interpretations of Christianity today. God brought back the original organization by calling apostles now to teach the message, just like Peter did in his day. Show more Show less
