Why I am a Mormon

I know that there is a God, and He is a loving Heavenly Father, that I am one of His many children here on earth, and that there is a purpose to life and a goal for me to accomplish while living here on earth. Because I know there is a God, I know there is a way back to Him. I know that way is provided through Jesus Christ and it's only through Jesus Christ that I can return back to my Father in Heaven. Because of that knowledge I follow the example of Christ. I know that He came to this earth and suffered and died for my salvation, out of love for me. I know its necessary to be clean in the presence of God; because of Jesus Christ that becomes a reality. This knowledge makes me want to follow my Savior and His teachings. I know His teaching are true because of the Holy Spirit. I know that the church He organized on earth is Gods church, that His church was founded on the apostles and prophets, with Him (Jesus Christ) being the chief cornerstone. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God, as was Moses and other prophets of the past. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that He spoke to them face to face. I cannot deny the feelings and truth that comes from hearing of his encounter of the first vision. I know Joseph Smith was prepared by God to bring this earth out of spiritual darkness (that had been lost for many years). I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, because I have read and studied and pondered its teachings; after doing so I have prayed and received a witness from God, through the Holy Spirit, that it is true and correct. I know that the Book of Mormon is the fruit and proof that Joseph Smith has been called of God. It's because of these miracles, that I know I am a part of Christ's church; the same church that He organized while on the earth. I am grateful to be growing and learning more and more, because of the gospel. This is my testimony in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith, by following the example of the Savior. I do this by following His commandments set forth by Him and His prophets and apostles. I live and follow the covenants I have made at baptism and in the temple. I try my best to resist evil one day at a time.
