Hi I'm Rigdon Waite

I grew up in Arizona. I was called to an LDS Mission in Baguio, Philippines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! I love to play guitar and the drums as well as sing. I love rugby and played it.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this Church is the true church here on the earth. I have had experiences thus far, that have stacked enough evidence, that I never could deny that God exists, or there is a life after this one, or Jesus Christ lived, or revelation happens today, or that this is the ancient true and living church of Christ restored through the prophet, Joseph Smtih.

How I live my faith

I have Faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ. I show my faith by loving Him and the Father with all my heart, and by constantly seeking to do their will. I am also living my faith by serving a mission as the Lord has asked us to do through prophets and apostles.

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

Rigdon Waite
The Atonement of Jesus Christ offers us a way to come back to our Heavenly Father. It's through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we are forgiven. Since the time of Adam and Eve, Heavenly Father knew there would be need for a Savior, a blood sacrifice, to suffice for all sin later. It was a universal law. Sin requires sacrifice to be forgiven. Christ atoned for us all through His Atonement. Through him we can be forgiven, grow, and become like our Heavenly Father, and eventually live with him and Jesus Christ again. Show more Show less
