Hi I'm Brent Baxter

I grew up in Utah. I play almost every sport. I am serving a mission in Washington. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in the same city in Utah my whole life. I play every sport but golf and soccer are probably my two favorites. If I am not playing sports, I am usually watching them on tv. I am currently serving a mission in the Washington Everett Mission and loving every minute of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the mormon religion and I feel so blessed for that. My parents were a great example to me and their faith allowed me to have a chance to gain my own faith in Jesus Christ and His church. I am a mormon because I have done what the Book Of Mormon says to do and that is to ask God if the things the church teaches is true and whether or not Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know by the power of the holy ghost that Jesus did set up a church when he was on the earth and now it is once again restored onto the earth. Being a mormon has been the greatest blessing in my life. My family is so close and we know that we can be together forever.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission in the Washington Everett Mission. I go out from 10 in the morning until 9 at night and teach people about how the gospel has been restored to the earth. I learn more each day by studying for 2 hours in the morning. I love being able to see the people that I teach come closer to Christ and see how the restored gospel can help them in their lives.

What is the First Vision?

Brent Baxter
The first vision is where Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Joseph had a question of which church is right and this is how he got his answer. The Father and The Son told Joseph Smith that no churches were right and that the true Church of Jesus Christ would be restored back to the earth through him. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Brent Baxter
All you have to do to find out if this church is true is SINCERELY pray about it and ask God and then study the scriptures. We have to do our part in searching out if the church is true. We can't just ask in a prayer and hope the answer comes to us. If you REALLY want to know if it is true, then God WILL answer your prayer and you will find out that this is the true Church Of Jesus Christ and that the Book Of Mormon is the word of God.
