Hi I'm Ethan Gates

I grew up in Sacramento, and was baptized at fifteen.

About Me

There really isn't much to say here. I met a friend in high school at 14 who introduced me to the church, and a year later I was placed in the waters of baptism. Best decision I ever made.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I realized that this church brings a level of happiness I never experienced, and I know it's the Lord and Jesus Christ giving me that level of happiness.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good person and show my faith whenever I can

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Ethan Gates
No, they do not. Each member of the LDS church is asked to practice their personal freedom and vote on who they believe will represent their beliefs the best. The church will not involve themselves in political affairs unless it directly impacts our core beliefs. Show more Show less
