Hi I'm Chris

I'm a husband, a student, and a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Colorado Fort Collins Mission. I love talking with people and learning how I can help them come closer to our Father in Heaven. My desire is to help others and to love them as sons and daughters of our Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I haven't always been LDS, I didn't join the church until 2005. I lived in Iowa and was really strong in the Catholic faith, but I still had some questions like how could the Holy Trinity be possible, why don't we have prophets on Earth anymore, where did I come from, why am I here, and where am I going. These questions always went through my mind as an alter boy, but after my parents having a divorce and I talked to my dad about moving, we both decided to move to Washington, myself not knowing that I have out there. On the drive to Washington. We stayed with my cousins for months and one day I watch a movie from there shelves that was called "The Best Two Years."I decided that I wanted to serve the Lord and go on a Mission,I needed to study more about the Book of Mormon.After reading it and going to church with my cousins and the missionaries, I asked my brother and sister to go as well. We felt the Holy Ghost testify of the truthfulness of the gospel. My step mom was curious about it and was worried about us spending time with missionaries this much, so she attended a lesson, she asked so many questions and at the end, the sister missionary asked my mom to say the closing prayer. While she said the prayer, the Spirit was so strong and she was overwhelmed by the spirit and cried. She now knew why we were so interested in these Mormons. I found out that my dad was once a Mormon and left the church around 17 yrs of age and joined the Catholic church and married my biological mom. But now that he's seen his children and his wife feel the spirit, he knew that he made a mistake and he decided to take lessons and go to church.We were baptized April 16, 2005. I was 12 yrs old when I joined the church of God. My testimony is that I know Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. I have a testimony of the Divinity of Jesus Christ. And, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The way that I live my faith is by trying my best to live Christ-like. I was asked by a friend of mine, "what do Mormons do?". I answered, "We are missionaries, we testify of the reality and divinity of Jesus Christ."

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Chris
We welcome everybody to our service. We are very family oriented and enjoyed singing. We do many things during our service; we sing hymns, open and close with a prayer, partake of the sacrament (communion), and we have speakers that are from the congregation. We do have Sunday school and other classes after our worship service. We also have primary classes for children under the age of 12. I enjoy it every Sunday and learn something new everytime.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Chris
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I believe that they are two separate beings. I know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He lived on the Earth and lived a perfect life. He taught the people how to return to the presence of our Father in Heaven. He is our Savior; He Atoned for the Sins of the world by taking the sins of the world upon Himself in the Garden of Gethsemane and by giving His life on the cross that we might live again. He suffered and died so we can repent of our sins and return spotless to our Father in Heaven. Christ received the keys of Resurrection when He rose from the dead, He saved us from death. Because of it, we will be reunited with our body eternally. Then Christ will be our Judge. Show more Show less
