Hi I'm Mariano

I'm from Philippines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the Philippines in year 1994. I am a Mormon by birth, I love working with the Full Time and Ward Missionaries assigned in our area, and soon I'll becoming like them in a Full Time Mission. I also attended Institute classes, there I met lots of friends and co-members, I learn from them, more revelation comes every time I attended the class. For now I'm responding to my mission call. By this year I'll be leaving home to serve the Lord just becoming a part of the gathering of Israel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I follow the example of Jesus Christ by first being baptized by those who holds the authority of the Priesthood. I know that the Book of Mormon is True, and that Prophet Joseph Smith is a true Prophet of God, who restored the Gospel in our times. I also believe in our living prophet Thomas S. Monson together with his Counselors and with the twelve. I bear witness of the truthfulness and the divinity of God's word particularly the Book of Mormon. And because of that I wanted to serve him no matter what. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the True Church who teaches true doctrine and principles for the Salvation of mankind.

How I live my faith

faith is that we hope for things though unseen but true. It acts and centered on Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Faith when nourished by the word of God grows stronger and firmer. It is founded by the Principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ perhaps it is the first, because if faith starts to grow and strengthened everything will follow..., such as Repentance, Baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the End. I learn faith by studying, acting upon the revelations, and sharing it in many ways.

What is faith?

Mariano
faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the First principles of the Gospel. It is a confidence and motivations that will impel to action. Faith leads to repentance, Baptism and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost. A man who has Faith in Jesus Christ also believe His teachings including His Atonement. Show more Show less
