Hi I'm Spencer

I live in Connecticut. I love basketball and Ultimate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up all across the US and currently live in Connecticut. I attended BYU for a semester and am currently serving a full-time mission in Washington. I love to play sports and helping other people. I love the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was raised in the church, I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ's divinity, his ministry, and his sacrifice for all of us. I have gained this testimony through many experiences. I have prayed to my Father in Heaven to know if this church is true. It is hard to express all of my feelings for Him through the computer, but I assure you, He is my, and your, Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to my peers, following God's commandments, and serving others. I am one of the few members of my school who is Mormon. I try to share with them my beliefs and try to live by the statutes I have been taught. I also try to serve my community, which on turn, serves God. I also serve as a leader in my youth group. Basically, I try my best to emulate Christ. I know I'm not perfect, but I know Jesus will make up the rest.

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

Spencer
We believe that Christ atoned for our sins and was resurrected on the third day. Only through him can we live with our Father in Heaven again. This sacrifice shows us that he is indeed the Son of God. Only a divine being could live a perfect life and take our sins upon him. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Spencer
Grace in its basic sense is the gift that Christ has given us to become more than we are now. Reallu, it is just the enabling power of the Atonement. In the Book of Mormon it says: "It is by Grace we are saved after all we can do." (2 Nep 25:23) Ultimately, Jesus Christ's sacrifice for us is what saves us, after we have exersised faith, repented of our sins, received the ordinace of Baptism and the Confirmation, and kept the commandments until the end of our lives. May people believe that we don't have to anything to be saved. Paul tells us why this theory is incorrect in Romans 6:1-2, "What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin while grace may abound? God Forbid." What it comes down to though is this; that Christ's grace has made it possible for us to overcome sin and death so that we may live with God again. Show more Show less
