My Testimony of God and Jesus Christ

Below is a video I made of my testimony of God and Jesus Christ. Also, below it is a transcription of my testimony as delivered in the video.

Hello, my name is Randy. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or the Mormons, as a lot of people call us.

I want to share with you today, my personal knowledge of God, our Heavenly Father, and of his Son Jesus Christ.

I have a personal testimony that we have a Father in Heaven that loves us very, very much. I know that he knows each one of us individually by name, and I know that He takes a personal interest in our daily lives because we are all his children. I know that he loves us so much that he was willing to send his holy Son, our savior Jesus Christ, down to the earth to share the wonderful tidings of the gospel.

Jesus Christ is our savior. He walked the earth and taught his gospel to help us to know the things that we need to do in this life that we might find joy and happiness now, today! Through his gospel we can also know those things that we need to do and the ordinances we need to receive, in order to be able to return home and live with him and our Heavenly Father again.

I know that Jesus died on the cross, and that in doing so he took upon him all of our sins. I also know that he was resurrected--that he lives today--and because of his resurrection, every one of us will be resurrected and have the opportunity to receive immortality.

I also know that we can receive eternal life, but this only comes as we accept the gospel, receive the gospel ordinances, and live the gospel faithfully to the end of our lives. We can have true joy and happiness now, despite what is going on in the world. We live in some pretty turbulent times, and what a wonderful thing it is to have that knowledge.

I know all of these things by the power of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a testifier of truth. Through the Holy Ghost we feel peace in our hearts. When we feel that peace, love, hope, courage, faith; we can know that the things we are hearing, listening to, and learning come from God, come from our Heavenly father.

The invitation from Christ, that he gave anciently, to come unto him is still valid today. I share this testimony now in the hope that you will have a desire to learn more of him, to come unto Christ, and to receive rest to your souls now, and to receive eternal joy and happiness forever.

I share this testimony with you, and give you this invitation in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
