Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Dalton Clark
we baptize new members because it is nessisary. Jesus Christ was baptized to provid us a way to change and to eventually live with him again to be forgiven. we believe in being baptized by immersion and we make a promise to live like him and keep his commandments. the baptism represents the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. and as we are baptized it represents the death and burial of our old life and that we are starting a new life. we commit to live like Christ and keep the commandments and if we keep that promise then we are given the holy ghost to have it with you whitch leads you and guides you through all lifes challenges.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Dalton Clark
the word of wisdom is a commandment from God to abstain from the addictive substances of the earth coffie, tea, alcohol and illigal drugs. God has given us thiese bodies so that we can use them the right way and learn how to control them as he states in corinthians 15 our body is a temple and a temple is a house of God. so just like a temple is dedicated for God our bodies should be treated the same.

Joseph Smith was a 14 year old boy who had a question of what church he needed to join. he had a prayer and asked God which he needed to join.
