Hi I'm Jake Spencer

Serving in the Oregon Salem Mission. Leaving August 30th, 2017.

About Me

I am an 18 year old kid who recently just received their mission call to Salem, Oregon! I am very excited to teach the gospel to the people of Oregon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in eternal families. Without temple blessings and other ordinances, families couldn't be together forever and that is more tragic than anything we'll ever see on this earth. I am a Mormon because I know Jesus Christ lives and through me and the light of other Mormons, we can spread his gospel throughout the world!

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith to the fullest by being a good example to my friends and family. My family means the world to me and I am very grateful to have them in my life.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jake Spencer
While we do believe Joseph Smith was an important part in restoring the gospel, Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith. We worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We acknowledge Joseph Smith and the profound work he has done for our everlasting salvation, but at the end of the day, Mormons pray to God, not Joseph Smith. Show more Show less
