Hi I'm Jake Stewart

I grew up in Vista California. I am serving a mission in Calgary Canada and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jake Stewart. I am from Vista California. I like sports and I play guitar. I am on a mission in Calgary Canada and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

In the Introduction to the Book of Mormon it says "We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost. Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, that Joseph Smith is His revelator and prophet in these last days, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord’s kingdom once again established on the earth, preparatory to the Second Coming of the Messiah." The reason that I continue to live this religion is because I took this "challenge." I read the Book of Mormon, and prayed to know the truth. In answer to my prayer, I felt in my heart that The Book of Mormon is true! Along with that witness I also felt in my heart that Jesus Christ is truely my Savior and Redeemer. That Joseph Smith is a true Prophet of God. and that the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the True Church of God on the earth! And I have done this multiple times, with the same feelings of peace and comfort every time I have done so. This witness is promised to ALL people!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission and sharing with others the joy and peace that I have found through putting my trust in Jesus Christ.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Jake Stewart
I increase my faith through prayer. I pray that I will have greater faith! Another way to increase your faith is by serving others. Serving others helps you to see people as Christ sees us and that gives you greater faith in his love for you. Show more Show less
