Hi I'm Christopher

I love serving in the Church. I think that the purpose of life is to serve. And I am a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I have learned that I can be myself best when I am trying to be my best.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church, in part, because I feel that God has given me that opportunity as a gift. Also, in a logical way, God, the source of love, is the source of truth, and The book of Mormon contains that truth.

How I live my faith

I try and forget myself.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Christopher
It is a way to start anew. To be cleaned; to be reborn. God's way is an organized way. The authority to baptize must come through His church, through His servants. This authority is called 'the priesthood' and it is the same authority that the biblical prophets used to work miracles and baptize anciently. This authority was given to Joseph Smith and has been passed down from priest to priest and continues today. Show more Show less
