Hi I'm Allen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been called to invite others to come unto Christ. I am going to the Germany Frankfurt Mission. I enjoy music and like to play the piano and violin.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The reason I have continued to live the gospel is because the Family is the central role of our Father's plan. My family has been sealed in the temple so that we can be together forever. I want nothing more out of this life than to be able to be worthy and clean enough to be able to be with my family through the eternities. I also know that Jesus Christ died for me, that he has atoned for my sins and the sins of all mankind. He was sent by His Father in Heaven to be the mediator and to cleanse the sins of the world. It is through Him that salvation is attained and it is through Him that I can repent of my sins and make the goal of living with my Father in Heaven in the Celestial Kingdom. The knowledge that I have of the gospel is what encourages me to share the gospel of the world. I have been called to serve the people of Germany and I know that I have been sent to Germany to help some very specific people that my Heavenly Father has prepared for me.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I visit with people not of our faith and teach them about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also help the community I'm in by providing service for those that need it. I am a representative of Jesus Christ and abide by the standards that He would abide by. I have been called by a Prophet of God to help people repent and feel of the redeeming love of God and Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Allen
Mormons do believe that the Bible is Holy Scripture and the word of God. The Bible contains the record of the life of Jesus Christ in the Old World. The writings of the Bible came from inspired men of God and contain teachings that help us to become better people. The Bible contains the foundation for all of Christianity, and without it, we wouldn't know the nature of our Savior Jesus Christ and the mission He fulfilled on this Earth. Additional scripture has since been revealed to a prophet called of God. The Book of Mormon is an additional testament of Jesus Christ that supports and expounds on the teachings of the Bible. Using both scriptures together help us to gain faith in Jesus Christ, God our Heavenly Father and in the Holy Ghost, all three of which are individual persons in one purpose of bringing people salvation and eternal life.
