Why I am a Mormon

One day I went to work, I was approached by the missionaries, it was the first time I met with them, after we had meet more, and they taught me about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, and suggested that I read the book of Mormon, I've read, and I felt that this is true, and then I applied the teachings of the book of Mormon in my life, and I do it now, I read it every day, I see that I became closer to God than i was before. I know that the Book of Mormon it is the word of God and contains the Plan of Salvation for all mankind . I really love that doctrine that i could be together forever with my family and my friends.

How I live my faith

I'm doing that through reading and studying scriptures such as Bible and The Book of Mormon, through praying, keeping commandments, church attendance, and serving to people.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Andrew
Have you ever thought there must be something more to life than just living day to day? There is—much more. Your life has a divine purpose. God, your Heavenly Father, has prepared a marvelous plan for your happiness. When you realize that God has a plan for you, it is easier to understand why you are on this earth. God wants all of His children to progress and become more like Him. This time on Earth provides opportunities for you to grow and progress. Coming here allows you to: Receive a physical body. Exercise agency and learn to choose between good and evil. Learn and gain experience that will help you become more like your Heavenly Father. Form family relationships that may become eternal. By following our Heavenly Father’s plan, you—like all of His children—can someday return to live with Him and with your loved ones. You can have greater peace in this life and eternal joy in the life to come. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Andrew
Absolutely, this is a good example: The Book of Mormon prophet Alma compared faith to a seed. If you plant a seed and nourish it, if it is a good seed it will grow and eventually bear fruit (Alma 32:28-43). It is the same with faith. If you are obedient to God’s commandments, study His word, and have a desire to believe in Christ, faith will grow inside of you. Show more Show less
