Hi I'm Kolton Passmore

I'm a missionary with a desire to do my duty to God, country and family for the rest of my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a huge history buff with a love for good movies and there soundtracks, music, swimming, reading and discussing topics worth talking about. My favorite movie of all time is Inception. My favorite author of all time is Robert Ludlum. I plan on attending the Brigham Young University where I intend on earning a degree in Political Science with an International Affairs concentration. I hope to one day work for the Foreign Service. My dream is to one day write and publish political thriller novels.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that my redeemer lives. And I know that he is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I know that His true church has been established on the earth with prophets and apostles like in ancient times. I am apart of this great church because it is the only church that contains a fullness of the everlasting gospel. Why would I not want to be apart of it?

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission. So I live my faith by working hard in the mission field every day and help others receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. Though I'm not a perfect teacher or a perfect person. I strive continually to do the best I can to offer this glad message to everybody who crosses my path. "Line upon line, precept upon precept. Here a little, there a little." (2nd Nephi 28:30)

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

Kolton Passmore
We do not go around telling everybody to endorse a certain political party or candidate. We believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion and therefore has the right to choose who they think should run for political office. There are members of the church who are both Republican and Democratic. Show more Show less

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Kolton Passmore
Jesus Christ is the founder of our Church. The Prophet Joseph Smith simply restored the church on the earth by establishing the priesthood authority that the Saviors apostles held in ancient days. Joseph Smith reorganized the church on April 6,1830. But the Savior is the founder. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Kolton Passmore
The Book of Mormon is an ancient volume of holy scriptures with equal importance to the Holy Bible. It was written by prophets who lived on the American continent in ancient days. These were men who were called of God to testify to the inhabitants of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father loves every single one of us. It doesn't matter what side of the world you are on. He called prophets in the Americas so that the people could know of the Savior and accept him in their lives. Show more Show less
