Hi I'm Ian

I'm a web programmer, an optics enthusiast, and I love B-movies. And, of course, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student right now and I'm studying computer science.

Why I am a Mormon

Because there is a law. Because there is a law that states that if actions are taken, consequences are given. That law says that if we obey, we will be given truth, riches beyond compare, and eternal life. Throughout my life, the more closely I am obeying, the more often I receive divine consequences in my life. Not the least significant of these is a testimony--a knowledge granted through the Holy Spirit of God, that the Mormon church--the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints--is God's Own True and Living Church. This knowledge, that obedience to commandments brings blessings and truth, is why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because the laws taught here I have followed and found the truth therein. I am a Mormon because as I have applied this truth, I have had joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by patience, love, and service. I have been asked as are most members of our congregation to give my time to spend visiting the homes of the members of our local congregation--myself and another visit families and share with them messages from our church leaders and offer our support to them in whatever way we can. It's been a blessing to be able to server them in this capacity--to share with them my testimony as well as to have the opportunity to take the time to spend for the simple purpose of serving others around me.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Ian
Easy: the steps to become a member of the Mormon church are simple--all are welcome and invited to take the steps to become a member of this church. Becoming a member of the church requires that one develop faith in God and then exercise that faith. This faith in God can spring from study of scripture, sincere prayer, and a desire to believe. Next comes a desire to change for the better: a renewal. Starting new, good practices. Turning away from those wrong things we've done in our life and seeking to repair the damage done by them. After this, after this "change of heart" happens, we are able to make a special promise with God. This is one of the most important practices performed in our church--this promise, that we will take Christ's name upon us and serve him till the end, is given with a promise from God to us: that he will bless us with guidance and truth through his Holy Spirit and promises us eternal life in the life to come. This promise is taken with an action called "baptism," performed for us by someone who holds the sacred authority of God. This is a turning point in our life. This is when we have our sins washed away, and our new life begun. We are then confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If this is something you are considering, talk to your Mormon friend. Or, if you don't know any Mormons, seek out the missionaries of our church. They can answer your questions. Show more Show less
