Hi I'm John Gilbert

I grew up in Yellowstone National Park. I love the outdoors and my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking, biking, rock climbing, and any type of sport. I love hard work, it helps me grow, I've gone to a year of school at the, and I have no idea what my major is! My focus in my life is my family and doing my best to honor my parents teachings.

Why I am a Mormon

It improves and enlightens every aspect of my life, I am happier and more successful because of it. Most of all I'm a Mormon because I prayed and asked God to know for myself whether or not this church is true, my answer was an indisputable yes. This gospel means I can be with those I love for eternity, it means that god loves me enough to have sent his only begotten son, and he loves all of us enough to want us to be able to grow and progress.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission, I have always sought to be obedient. Before I became a missionary I was a teacher in a doctrine class. I am an Eagle scout, I volunteered at our local food pantry, and now I spend 24/7 serving my fellow man by teaching them about Christ's teachings and helping in any other service orientated way I can.

What do Mormons believe about family?

John Gilbert
We believe that our families can be together for eternity. This is a great gift that we can all enjoy through obedience to our Heavenly Fathers commandments. Our families are our greatest source of joy in this life, I love my family, I'm so happy I can be with them forever! Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

John Gilbert
This life isn't the end for us. God has a plan for us. He loves us and wants us to return to Him again. However, we know from the scriptures that "no unclean thing can enter into the kingdom of God". All men are sinners. We teach that in order for us to fully take part of the atonement and return to Gods presence we must obey God's commands and follow the example of Jesus Christ by being baptized by immersion by someone holding the proper authority of God. Baptism is not just a random action, it is a sign of our commitment to follow Christ. Through baptism we are made clean from our sins in a very real way. This is a sign of hope, the opportunity Jesus Christ has given us to start over again, to change, to be filled with joy! Show more Show less
