Hi I'm Kenneth

I was born in WV and live there now. I was baptized into the Church in Youngstown Ohio in 1973. That changed my life.

About Me

I am a grandfather, served in the military and enjoy sharing the gospel with others. I enjoy wood working, writing, painting nature scenes and pictures children might enjoy. History is a large interest of mine as is carpentry. I have a large collection of books. I also enjoy sharing the gospel with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because even though I was baptized in another denomination I felt the LDS Church could answer so many question that I could not get from the church I had belonged too. The church , for me, was so much like the church Jesus had established in the Bible. I live the gospel because I think that the LDS Church's teachings are the most Christ like teaching from the time Christ originally established his Church. Even to the appointment to the same positions as are in the Bible. A Prophet, apostles and so on.

How I live my faith

I am an elder and my calling is ward historian. I enjoy the calling very much. I also run a Facebook page for church information about local communication for members who care to join. The membership in the ward can share freely photos, messages. and help spread the gospel.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Kenneth
Baptism is like the door to God's Kingdom. Our Father in heaven used the ordinance of Baptism to show the way to enter into the covenant with Him so we can come into his kingdom as we obey his commandments and laws. It is such an easy earthly way to get started to learning and practicing obedience to his commandments and laws. An act so simple yet so Eternal to help us along the way to living in his eternal Kingdom. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Kenneth
Over the centuries man had changed and removed many teachings of Jesus. There were even some of teachings lost. When the Lord knew it was time for the restorations of those teachings he had to have a way to do so. He found a young boy who prayed often and frequently to understand why some much that was in the known scriptures was not taught by any of the churches in the area he was. The Lord answered his prayers with the revelation that none were true. The the Lord told him that He had something to do. And young Joseph did as instructed by the God. Show more Show less
