Hi I'm Johan

I'm from Sweden, I love skiing and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I love sports, being with my family and hanging out with friends. During winter season I love to go Skiing and play Icehockey. During summertime I love to go boating with my friends. I love to swim and go biking aswell.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know the Church is true. I know that God has a plan for each and every one of us and that we can come back and live with him again because of Gods son Jesus Christ and his Atonement. I know that God lives and that he has called a Profet on this earth to guide us and tell us about Gods messanges. I also know that The Book of Mormon is true and that it comes from God. The knowledge of these things has helped me so much in my life, because I know why I am here and what I therefore must do, to come back and live with God again

How I live my faith

I go to Church every Sunday and I pray and I read the scriptures every day. I'm now serving a full-time mission in England Manchester. Before that I was a primary teacher in Church.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Johan
Jesus Christ taught that we must be baptized by immersion (Mark 16:16; 3 Nephi 11:21-26). He set the example Himself by being baptized to “fulfill all righteousness” (Matthew 3:15). We are baptized by someone who has God’s priesthood authority for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16). We are also baptized to become members of the Church of Jesus Christ, and to enter the kingdom of God (John 3:5). Through the ordinance of baptism, we make a promise, called a covenant, with God. We promise to accept Christ, to become His followers, and to keep His commandments to the end of our lives. In return, our Heavenly Father promises to forgive our sins and let us return to live with Him, provided we keep our covenants. Show more Show less
