About Me

Most of my hobbies involve sports and outdoor activities. I love hiking camping riding atvs riding snowmobiles and being with my family. I am a 18 year old boy getting ready to serve a mission in Kampala Uganda. After that I am going to college at byuidaho. I have played basketball and adore the best sport on earth for me! I love spreading the word of God and being a missionary for the Lord. I will return in Sep of 2016 so ladies eh hem i will be single and ready to mingle!

Why I am a Mormon

I had the opportunity to be born into the church. But not all people that are born into the church have the a true conversion. This has been found for me through the reading of the Book of Mormon. Through the chapters I read I was able to make it real and apply it to the world today. Therefore making it applicable to my self and the world we live in today. And Christ and his Holy Spirit testified unto me that it was true. I have a testimony of Joseph smith, he could not make up the words that people think he did. Anyone that reads the Book of Mormon knows that that is true. And if that is true then of course it was given to him by a heavenly messenger that knows all things. And if that is true then he was a prophet. And if that is the then of course this book is true which means that this church is true. The way to believe is through the first step. Without the first step you cannot reach the second one and then the third and so on and so forth. This is the true gospel if you are seeking for the truth just try and fin the missionaries and see if you can feel and find the truth.

How I live my faith

I have been the deacons quorum president, the teachers quorum 1st counselor, and the priest 1st assistant. I enjoy serving in these positions for the past 6 years. I also go home teaching to visit families that are struggling or just need help. I love doing that as well.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Clay Rogers
“We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel” (Articles of Faith 1:3). Baptism in water is an ordinance essential to our salvation. By being baptized, we show God that we are willing to be obedient to His commandments. Jesus set the example for us by being baptized, even though He was without sin (see Mosiah 18:8-10). The Savior revealed the proper method of baptism to the Prophet Joseph Smith, making clear that the ordinance must be performed by one having priesthood authority and that it be done by immersion (see Doctrine and Covenants 20:72-74). Immersion is symbolic of the death of a person’s sinful life and the rebirth into a spiritual life, dedicated to the service of God and His children. It is also symbolic of death and resurrection. (See Romans 6:3-6) Little children are redeemed through the mercy of Jesus Christ. They are “alive in Christ” and cannot sin. They do not need baptism until they understand the difference between right and wrong. The Lord has revealed that children should be baptized at eight years of age. (See Book of Mormon, Moroni 8:8-24; Doctrine and Covenants 29:46-47, 68:27) Show more Show less
