Hi I'm Jacob

I am an civil engineering student, I love soccer, friends and my family. These things make me happy and...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, I'm from Arizona. I am 21. I am the 6th of 8 children. My familys mean a lot to me. I like to do a lot of different things. Anythings ranging from sports like soccer and basketball, outdoor activities, I have hiked the Grand Canyon 5 times already, spending time with family and friends, exercising, enjoying God's creations, and learning something new.

Why I am a Mormon

If this church was wrong than I wouldn't be here today. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it is true. I know that it is because I prayed about it and I have felt it with all my heart to be the truth, the church that Christ himself established through a modern day Prophet, Joseph Smith. "And thus they were instruments in the hands of God in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth, yea, to the knowledge of their Redeemer." -Mosiah 27:36 This is what I do now as a missionaries for 2 years and we don't do it for money or any other reason to help our fellow men and to follow the commandments of God.

How I live my faith

I am currently on a two year mission to invite people to come unto Christ. I love going to church and trying to become the better me every day. Life can sometime be hard but I find peace on my knees, praying to God and reading from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Before my mission I was a math tutor and I still enjoy that feeling that comes from helping others.  I am now serving the Lord as a missionary in the Idaho Pocatello Mission. =D

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Jacob
2 Nephi 25:23 ~ For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do. Articles of Faith #3 ~ We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. Jesus Christ is our loving brother who is willing to save us from spiritual death but we must choose to let him make a change within us and that can only happen if we follow him. Show more Show less
