Hi I'm Richard McKinney

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission in St. Louis Missouri.I have been a member of the church my whole life basically.I love the church.The blessings of the atonement that I have received have been so great.I am loving the opportunity I have to serve.I will never claim to be perfect but I know that through the love of our savior I will be forgiven of my mistakes.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love our savior Jesus Christ.I love that he's given us such great direction in this life through prophets,the Book of Mormon,and through the temple.I love being able to know that I can be with my family even after this life.I have fallen away from the church in high school.I have experienced life without the church.I know of the importance and the blessing of this great gospel.I know that this is the true church.I know that our heavenly father loves all of us.I know that Jesus Christ is my savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading scriptures,praying frequently and right now I'm serving a mission.I show faith every day when I go out and speak with others about this church.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Richard McKinney
Temples are used for sacred ordinances.They are here on the earth for not only us but for those who have passed on.We can perform baptisms for the dead,,sealings,and other ordinances there.The covenants we make in the temple are truly holy and sacred. Show more Show less
