Hi I'm Dylan
I'm a Mormon.
I am 28 years old. I grew up in California. I'm currently a college student. I am studying Business Administration. I served in the U.S. Navy for 4 1/2 years. I have traveled to Canada, Mexico, Spain, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Tunisia, Jordan, and Dubai. I served as a full-time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2 years in Western Canada.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I want to follow Jesus Christ. We can follow Jesus Christ by having faith in Him, repenting of our sins, being baptized, becoming members of His Church, and sincerely striving with our whole heart to keep God's commandments for the rest of our lives. The Book of Mormon testifies that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and also "tells men what they must do to gain peace in this life and eternal salvation in the life to come" (Introduction to the Book of Mormon). The Gospel of Jesus Christ is God's plan for us to be truly happy in our lives and to bring our families closer together.
How I live my faith
In the New Testament, James wrote, "I will shew thee my faith by my works" (James 2:18). I believe that we can live our faith by making a lifelong commitment to follow the perfect example of Jesus Christ. The Savior taught His disciples in the Americas to follow Him by becoming as He is. He taught them, "what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am" (3 Nephi 27:27). Additionally, we can live our faith by doing missionary work. Jesus Christ commanded His disciples, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).
