Hi I'm Maxwell Creamer

I was born in Provo Utah but moved to Arizona when I was 3. Currently I am serving a mission in south Carolina.

About Me

Hi I'm Max, I’m currently 22 years old and am serving a mission in South Carolina. I’m also a big brother, son, friend, and a Mormon. I graduated high school in 2012, I enjoy football, wrestling, and track. In 2012 I was ranked 92nd in the world for throwing Discus in my age group. I love to learn, and write, my dream is to speak at least 4 possibly 5 languages. Of which are English, Spanish, German, Italian, and possibly Japanese. I speak English and Spanish fluently, but I still have to work on the others. I love to travel, and have been fortunate enough to travel most of Europe, Central, and South America. I also enjoy cooking, but more importantly eating, haha. The most important things to me are the savior, family, and my friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that Heavenly Father answers our prayers, and I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I wasn't raised in the faith, and because of that I've seen the noticeable difference that living the gospel of Jesus Christ can make. I can't really sum up why I am a Mormon any better than saying that I know it's true. This is the same Church Jesus Christ himself established, it was restored to the earth by Christ through his prophet Joseph Smith, and I have a strong testimony of that. If you read the scriptures, pray, and apply the principles taught by the church in your life you can too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to keep the commandments, loving others, and following the counsel of our prophet. Currently I am serving a mission In South Carolina, and spending my time serving others.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Maxwell Creamer
Missionaries share a message about the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ, and how through it we have again been given a knowledge of Gods plan of happiness for us. Which we also refer to as his plan of salvation. They will act as your guides in obtaining that happiness as you live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Mainly having faith in Jesus Christ, repenting, being baptized by immersion with proper priesthood authority, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring (or as I like to say: persevering) till the end.

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

Maxwell Creamer
The Atonement Is the sacrifice Jesus Christ made to provide us with the Gospel (Good News). The good news being that a path has been cleared for us to return to our Heavenly Father if we so choose. The word atonement when used in a religious sense refers to bringing us into unity with God. In Alma 42:15 it says “And now, the plan of mercy could not be brought about except an atonement should be made; therefore God himself atoneth for the sins of the world, to bring about the plan of mercy, to appease the demands of justice, that God might be a perfect, just God, and a merciful God also.” Just as this scripture points out the Atonement of Jesus Christ gives us access to Gods mercy and grace. Jesus Christ himself, a member of the Godhead suffered for all of our sins, “…he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5. He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross at Calvary hill. He individually experienced our pains, and payed the price for our sins so that we could be forgiven and perfected. Without the Atonement of Jesus Christ our lives would truly have no eternal purpose, and we would all just be living a meaningless menial life, without any hope of a better tomorrow. But that is not the case, and I testify of the importance and availability of the atonement for all of us. Show more Show less
