Hi I'm Matthew Payne

I grew up in Brigham City, Utah. I have grown up in the gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing music. I play the piano, saxophone, oboe, a little trombone, and I'd love to learn more. I'm an Eagle Scout, and I've been to Mexico three times to help build houses for families down there. I enjoy reading and playing sports, particularly ultimate frisbee, lacrosse, and basketball, although I don't claim to be expert in any one of those.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I know it is true. I'm thankful for my parent's testimonies and for their examples to me.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to mutual and hanging out with everyone while doing service for the elderly in our ward or working on our Duty to God. I go hometeaching with my dad, and it's fun to visit families in the ward. I have been called to serve a mission and I am trying to become the best missionary I can be with the Lord's help.

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

Matthew Payne
God has always given revelation to man through the Holy Ghost, and continues to do that today. The Book of Mormon and the Bible are both word of God, just given through different prophets. (see 2 Nephi 29:8-10) Show more Show less
