Hi I'm Benjamin Joseph

I grew up in Alaska and now am studying engineering. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Alaska for most of my life. I love camping, fishing, and hiking. I have a lot of hobbies and enjoy being creative. I love helping others. I attend a University and I am studying to become a Civil Engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into the Church when I was 9 years old. I love my savior Jesus Christ. This gospel has brought me so much joy and happiness that I know it must be true. I love reading and studying the scriptures. They have helped me to understand so much about my savior and His plan for me.

How I live my faith

I love doing service for others and just being a good friend to everyone. I served as a Ward Institute Representative helping others to go to Institute and learn more about Christ and his gospel. Institute is a class where we discuss things such as Church History, the Old and New Testaments, and modern day scripture.

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

Benjamin Joseph
We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. It is Holy Scripture. We use the King James Version. We have several helpful footnotes and supplements such as the Bible Dictionary and Topical Guide to help study. Show more Show less
