Amberlee posted a topic in Learn about the Mormon ChurchMy boyfriend grew up in the church but was never baptized. I grew up in a very sinful Antichristian household. I moved in with him and his family due to issue at home. Now we go to church on Sunday and I really enjoy it and feel the Holy Spirit there and want to become a member. My boyfriend says he’ll get baptized with me but we can’t be baptized until after we get married. I’m working on myself and becoming more Christ like (reprogramming myself from my childhood). Would it still be good for us to do lessons with the missionaries and go to Sunday school even though we won’t be able to be baptized member of the church for quite a while before we can get married.
Amberlee replied to Amberlee's topic in Learn about the Mormon ChurchSo I know this is not exact but the way I see it is that though cohabitation is not necessary a sin things that come with it are and when we get married we have the chance to repent without repeating the sin before baptism.
Amberlee replied to Amberlee's topic in Learn about the Mormon ChurchSo since we can’t be baptized until after marriage which won’t be happening soon sadly, talking with the missionaries wouldn’t be too helpful other than the social and testimony. But going to Sunday school and studying would be better for now? When we get married the missionaries would be more helpful to us in order to work towards our baptism? Probably a year or two before we get married. I’m joining the church because I believe Jesus is my savior and that this is his real church. We’ve talked to the bishop already and he said he’d set something up with the missionaries to visit us and have lessons.
