Hi I'm Joseph-patrick

My name is Joseph, I am a Latter-Day Saint Convert. In my childhood I grew up in Brea, CA (My Mother grew up in Church of Christ).

About Me

I love studying our LDS Doctrine, and other religions (especially how they relate to the The Church). I love going to LDS Institute. I haven't gone to college yet. I plan on going to a community college to earn some more credits, then I plan on going to BYU. I am 19 years old. I graduated high school at an academy school in Utah. I am also interested in computers and technology.

Why I am a Mormon

I know with a perfect knowledge that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer for all mankind. He is the only begotten Son of God the Eternal Father, I know that he has overcome the world, so that we may too overcome through Him [Jesus Christ]. I believe in God the First (Heavenly Father) The Creator, God the Second, The Redeemer (Jesus Christ), and God the Third, The Witness or Testator (The Holy Ghost).

How I live my faith

I very much love having callings to serve in the Church. I love serving God

What is the priesthood?

Joseph-patrick
The priesthood is the authority to act in God’s name. The same priesthood authority that existed in the original Church established by Jesus Christ exists in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today. The Church is directed and led through this authority. All male members of the Church who are prepared receive the priesthood in order to help lead the Church and serve Heavenly Father’s children. A man with the priesthood might serve in some of the following ways: Leading congregations of the Church Performing the ordinances of the Church, such as baptism Blessing those who are sick God expects those who hold this sacred priesthood authority to follow the example of Jesus Christ and serve with love, gentleness, and kindness.
