Why you are going on a mission? Testimony, or Other Comments: I’m serving a mission because God has given me much and I want to share His gospel, His good news with others.
It is my testimony that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Eternal Father, the Lord God of Israel, and my Redeemer. I am saved by His grace alone and I am committed in word and deed to living after His example.
I know that God the Father lives and desires for us to be with Him once more. I know that he loved us so much that he sent His Only Begotten to redeem us. I know that if we prove faithful and repent of our sins, we can gain all the Father hath, as he has promised.
I have a firm testimony that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord. He was simply that – the Lord’s chosen servant to usher in the Restoration of His church. He is nothing more that a prophet and nothing less than a man qualified by God to do the work of the Lord.
I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that the Bible is the word of God as far as it is translated correctly. I revere both of those books as precious and irreplaceable canon. I grow and learn by heeding the commandments of the Lord as given in those testaments.
I know that I belong to that same Church which Christ himself established in his days. The same organization that existed in the primitive church and the same authority by which to act in the name of the Lord is present again today. I shout for joy to know that God’s words have not ceased and that he truly doeth nothing save he revealeth it to his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7).
I am grateful to the Lord for all I have.
I leave this witness in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
