Hi I'm Gavin Anderson

I am an audiophile, a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving an LDS mission in the Georgia, Atlanta North mission. I grew up in Eagle Mountain, UT. I am an avid musician and have been in several performing art groups playing guitar! I also love to mountain bike, rock-climb, hike, anything outdoors!

Why I am a Mormon

Why? Well why not?? I grew up as a Mormon in Utah, but there is no way that I would have stayed strong, unless I had taken the effort to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. And find out for myself the truth. I have come to relish the sweet and simple truths of Christ's gospel! He wants us so badly for us to come unto him. All it takes is one small step of faith.

How I live my faith

I currently am living my faith by serving a full-time mission for the church, and trying to live the commandments to the best of my ability! I want others to feel the joy, peace, and understanding that the restored gospel has brought to me.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Gavin Anderson
I love the Bible! I do not know what I would do without it. I love and revere the great men that received that revelation through the Holy Ghost. They were, and are, prophets of God. And they received revelation specifically for the people they were ministering over. There has been a prophet that has written scripture in every righteous dispensation! So why not now? The Book of Mormon supports and exalts the Bible. And with the two together, there is no room for doubt or confusion. Show more Show less
