Hi I'm Ron Baumgarner

I was born and raised in HIckory, NC. I help the sick, injured and save lives. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A father of 5 and grandfather of 14. I've been a paramedic for the pass 26 years. I love helping people and love being a member of the Church. My beliefs and faith helps me each day to do my job, being a better father and grandfather.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that families can be forever and that the proper authority of God has been restored to the earth. I believe that the Book of Mormon is another testimony of Jesus Christ, that his teachings are true and he has prepared us a way to come back to him. I know by the Holy Ghost this to be true, by faith, repentance, baptism and laying on of hands by the proper authority is the only way back to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I go out with the missionaries and partake of the spirit that dwells with them when teaching to gospel of Jesus Christ. I try to live by example and teach my family what is important and valued in life. By all means I'm not perfect and feel that by living the principles taught to me will guide me in that direction and give the opportunity to do so.

Why is family so important to Mormons?
