Hi I'm Josh Englis

I have lived in Idaho Falls for about 12 years and I been a Mormon my whole life.

About Me

I am nineteen years old and i am going on a mission to the Queretaro, Mexico mission. After the I am planning on going to school at Utah Valley University and studying Professional Piloting and Aviation Sciences. I love to play soccer I have been playing since I was about four years old, I love snowboarding, biking, hiking, playing the drums and piano, and being with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i know that this Gospel is true and that no one can tell me that i am wrong because i have a strong firm testimony of the Gospel. Especially the restoration of the Gospel by Joseph Smith and all that he went through to have the world know how glorious this Gospel is.

How I live my faith

All my life since I was in primary to now is to be like Jesus Christ and try to show others what he would be like towards other people. Whenever i read the Book of Mormon I read about his second coming and that he will deliver us out of darkness and wash away or sins again if we are worthy to enter into the kingdom of God. I guess the way I live my faith is to be like him because if we are then we will be with our Heavenly Father again and it will be an amazing experience.

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

Josh Englis
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is what brings us all together i think. i mean we wouldn't be in a church building on Sunday partaking of the sacrament and renewing our covenants with God so we can be together with him again, if it wasn't for the Atonement. so yes, it is very necessary in our lives. Jesus didn't want to do it but he is an obedient example to us because he did what God asked him to do and we owe him everything we have to become just like him. in return to him will serve him in all kinds of ways like serving a mission for a certain amount of time, or being kind to others, reading our Scriptures, praying, and keeping the Sabbath day holy by taking the sacrament.
