Hi I'm Matt

I'm from Tooele, Utah, a car mechanic, and love the Savior Jesus Christ and his Gospel!

About Me

I'm a car mechanic that likes to do anything and everything with cars. They are my life! I've also been called a "computer guru" before. At this point in my life, I'm not going to college, but instead I am serving a mission for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Crist. When I get back, I am going to go college and learn about auto-body repair. I'd like to open up a shop someday!

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of a willingness to follow Jesus Christ, he has set that perfect example for us. Its hard sometimes to pick an exact reason why I am a Mormon, but I know that Jesus Christ does love me and this is the way he wants me to go. I know that this is His church here on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by serving a mission. All my time and attention is devoted to serving God our Heavanly Father and Jesus Christ his son. It has been a great opportunity to share the things I believe in with others. It has strengthened my belief in Jesus Christ by serving Him.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Matt
We have 12 apostles because we follow the example of Jesus Christ. When Jesus Christ was on the Earth he set up a church, and we believe that the same church that He set up is the same church we have today. When Christ was on the Earth he called 12 men to help him lead and direct the church, and to help spread the teachings of Jesus Christ. These men, also serve as representatives of Jesus Christ. In Christs time, after he was crucified, the 12 apostles leaded and directed Christ church. Today it is the exact same set up, we have a prophet who is called by God to direct us, and the prophet has 12 apostles who help him lead and direct the church. Show more Show less
