Hi I'm Dennis Mataia

Samoan currently living in Hawaii. I am a part owner of a Travel Company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of 2 boys. I love basketball, music and food.

Why I am a Mormon

Mormonism to me is not just a church. It is the Work of God here on earth. That work is "to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life man" Moses 1:39 To whom much is given; much is required. We have a lot to do in very little time.

How I live my faith

I work with Young Single Adults at church. I assist them in whatever they need. They are like my own brothers and sisters and they have taught me so much.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Dennis Mataia
Jesus Christ did what only He could do in atoning for our sins. To make His Atonement fully effective in our individual lives, we must have faith in Christ, repent of our sins, be baptized and confirmed by one having authority, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, obey God’s commandments, receive sacred ordinances, and strive to become like Him. As we do these things through His Atonement, we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father forever. Show more Show less
