Hi I'm Zach

I grew up in Las Vegas and my family now lives in Florida. I love the water and anything that involves running and i'm a mormon

About Me

I love to be outside and i'll play any type of sport. The ocean is one of my favorite places to be. I could spend all day out on a boat going from island to island and enjoying the many water sports such as wakeboarding, tubing and even scurfing. I played four years of basketball in high school and one year of performance diving recieving the most improved diver award. I also would very much like to be in a ska band even though i do not play any brass instruments but i can have my dreams right?

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? There is nothing you can do more to be blessed by God but by following him. Being a mormon i do my best to follow God with all my heart and as i do that i recieve many great and wonderful blessings in my life. Honestly i don't know where i would be without my belief. I would definelty be a lossed cause.

How I live my faith

Right now im a missionary in the California Santa Rosa Mission. I've been serving since November of 2009 teaching the spanish people about our Saviour Jesus Christ and helping them grow closer to him. Being a missionary has also helped me greatly in my life. The things we learn in this gospel bring us true happiness and helps us live up to our potential. I know that as i strive to follow Christ i will be a happier and more successful person.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Zach
Christ taught us in the bible that in order for us to enter into the kingdom of God we must be baptized by water and by the spirit. Unfortunatley in this world there are many and have been many who have died without even knowing of the great plan that God has prepared for us. These people may not have known that it is necesary for us to be baptized or they even may not have known that there is a Saviour. Because God loves us and wants every single person to have the chance to choose to return to him he commanded that we should do baptisms for those who have passed away. They have the chance to accept this or not and it gives every single person that has lived on this earth to accept that sacred covenant. these people who have passed away do not have physical bodies and baptism is a physical ordinance so we perform that by being baptized for and in behalf of somebody who has already passed away. Its amazing how perfect God's plan is. Show more Show less
